Deputy Liberal Leader Sussan Ley has fired a warning shot at so-called culture warriors within her party.

Essentially she’s saying the Liberals are not interested in the Culture Wars because it’s not the pathway to power.

In an opinion article for the Australian, Ley reflects on the tenth anniversary of the election of the Abbott government.

It’s a rallying cry for unity and the jettisoning of distractions.

‘We are not a party for single-issue culture wars, dominated by reactionary populists,’ she writes.

In 2013 ‘we weren’t bogged down in culture wars’.

Ley doesn’t define what these ‘culture wars’ are or who the ‘single issue reactionary popularists’ are.
