Born and bred in north-west New South Wales, Tony 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 Windsor's courageous political path. He was the only National member to move a no-confidence motion against its leader. He undertook a 17-day assessment period of what Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard offered following the indecisive election in 2010 and seized the opportunity of the subsequent hung parliament. By staying true to his values and beliefs in difficult and challenging times, Tony Windsor has come to stand for integrity and decency in Australian politics.
