Abstract Ethics asks the 'ought' question. Ought Laurie Oakes have disclosed Cheryl Kernot's affair with Gareth Evans? Ought the affair be taken into account in any assessment of Kernot's motives for defecting to the ALP? Ought Kernot have disclosed the affair to ALP leaders before her defection? Ought Kernot have omitted the affair from her memoir? Ought politicians' private lives be paraded in public? Ought journalists re-consider their treatment of high-profile women in public life? All these issues and more are discussed in the colloquium below.
