Burchett whitewash continues

Bill Hyde published On Burchett by Tibor Méray. He has written an account of the reaction to the book at the Australian Conservative:

Patrick Morgan in Quadrant was right when he wrote: “Burchett’s apologists now have nowhere to go.” They are indeed silent. Burchett’s supporters have not written anything about the Méray book. They would not be able to refute anything in it. Instead of saying something meaningful, in an Internet forum five academics and retired academics attacked Robert Manne for “changing his mind”. It is interesting that they seem to believe that changing one’s opinion, in the light of the emergence of new evidence or fresh thinking, is considered a flaw.
