Philosophies an Factionalism[eedit | eedit soorce]

Modren Leeberalism in Australie is muckle reprasentit bi the Leeberal Pairty o Australie, wham ar generally an advocate o economic leeberalism (see New Right). Houaniver, during Leeberal govrenments afore the Howard Govrenment, the pairty wis quite interventionist in hits economic policy an maintainit Australie's hie tariffs. At that time, the Leeberals' coalition pairtner, the Kintra Pairty, the aulder o the twa in the coalition (kent as "Naitional Pairty" the nou), had conseederable influence oer the Govrenment's economic policies.

The Leeberal Party is kent as a conservative party the nou, awtho hit has aye had a social leeberal weeng. Recently, in the Prime Meenistership o John Howard, the pairty moved til a maire socially conservative policy agenda. The pairty has twa unorganised factions, the majority conservative right an the minority moderate left. Historically, moderates hae creatit thair ain pairties, fir ensaumple the Australien Democrats.
