The rise and fall of Santo Santoro

When Santo Santoro arrived at a Young Liberals meeting three decades ago, his reputation as a hard worker preceded him. Unlike colleagues including Alexander Downer, Santoro was not a born-to-rule Liberal with a plummy accent and a silver spoon in his mouth. Santoro, whose resignation from federal parliament has bruised the Howard Government, came to Australia from Sicily aged five with his family. As a Sicilian Catholic, he did his secondary schooling at Marist College Rosalie, which catered primarily to working-class boys. It was there that Santoro's prodigious work ethic became apparent - Andrew Fraser
