Traitor or saviour? Tony Windsor has been called both in his 22-year political career, but never more often than when he supported Julia Gillard to form government in 2010.

Born and bred in north-western New South Wales, Tony Windsor has held the balance of power in state and federal parliaments for nearly a third of his public life. He has always stood as an Independent, believing it was the only way he could achieve the attention country voters deserved from the major parties.

Windsor's Way reveals Tony's courageous political path—as a young branch member he moved a no-confidence motion against the National Party leader. He conducted a rigorous 17-day assessment period of Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard's promises following the indecisive 2010 election and then seized the opportunities of the subsequent hung parliament.

By staying true to his values and beliefs in difficult and challenging times, Tony Windsor has become an emblem of integrity and decency in Australian politics.

      Comments about Windsor's Way:

      I now know how a good Independant can be very good for the whole country. mr Windsor did the right thing in supporting the Gillard minority government and he tells his story so well.

                Comments about Windsor's Way:

                I the current mood of despair about the state of national politics and its disconnect with the electorate, it is important not know that there are people like Windsor who can use political skills for the good of others rather than their own self importance.
