I’m doing a different kind of post to honour one of the giants of Australia’s parliamentary history who died yesterday so hopefully you’ll bear with me even though this Prime Minster is probably a complete unknown to you. Gough Whitlam, former Prime Minister of Australia from 1972-75, is one of my heroes.  He was a […]
