'It's only when we listen that we can hear what might be beyond the words'. Patrick Dodson introducing PM John Howard, Reconciliation Convention, 1997. When John Howard famously 'lost it' during his speech opening the convention and audiences turned their backs, he used the word 'blemish' to describe the significance of Indigenous dispossession and frontier violence in colonial Australia. With the help of Judith Brett, HOWARD'S BLEMISH speculates on what's at stake in the Prime Minister's choice of words.
