In eight years Frank Sartor served as a minister under three NSW premiers: Carr, Iemma and Keneally, and was an avid backbench observer under Rees. In his book The Fog on the Hill he argues that the current ALP has lost its way and that it needs fundamental reform. He also laments the quality of contemporary government policy making. How did it come to this? Is it salvageable? He talks to Lachlan Harris.
