New Askin exhibit

Sydney Crime Museum is honoured to announce a new exhibit, Dr Paul Loughnan’s thesisĀ about the Askin government, in which he questions the received wisdom that Askin himself was not only deeply corrupt, but helped run the underworld for some eight years. This amazing allegation has been widely accepted since it was first floated four days after Askin died in 1981.

Visit the museum website to read this major contribution to the history of Sydney and the government of New South Wales. Members of the Liberal Party, who largely turned their backs on Askin, are particularly urged to read the relevant part of Dr Loughnan’s thesis.
