Whitlam remembers the dismissal
Tim Shaw talks with Nicholas Whitlam, son of former PM Gough, on the 36th anniversary of The Dismissal. Nicholas gives an insider's view of what remains perhaps the greatest constitutional crisis in Australian history.

A geat man in Australian politics - undoubtedly one of the all time greats! Probably a bit assertive rather than diplomatic, but he had his heart in the right place. His adversary Malcolm Fraser has moved so much closer to Gough's position over the years that one wonders whether the crisis could have been avoided if these two had the opportunity of sincere discussions. The country will always be indebted to Gough for Medicare, Superannuation and the ending of conscription.Terrence Monday 14 November, 2011 - 10:20 PM
Steve just do what every white person does. Molets kids then go shot women and children. You can even declare an official war to not get punished. Now do the country a favour and stop more liberals bringing in indians to take the jobs away.Chris Monday 14 November, 2011 - 2:37 PM
this is the man that opened the flood gates to let anyone come in to this once great country big mistake freekin weak leftists.Australia stinks because of him.steve Monday 14 November, 2011 - 1:58 PM
This now the 2nd greatest constitutional crisis in Australia the Rudd/Gillard governments have now taken over particularly Gillard. We remember well the reasons for the dismissal clearly and the dimissal was justified, we see more reasons today than those that existed in Whitlam's day that require this illegal government to be kicked out and the culprits bought to accoun legally.mick Monday 14 November, 2011 - 8:40 AM
How much worse was the Political situation then, than the current one !!!???
What started as a ILLEGITIMATE Government has now become a DICTATORSHIP, where a Nation's voice is being ignored & the public is being treated with utter contempt !!
Our G G owes the Australian Taxpayers an explanation as to why she is NOT ACTING on our behalf and at least call an election !!
Her support for this Useless & Harmfull Government is beyond any comprehension !!!sonja silic Sunday 13 November, 2011 - 6:56 PM
It is a pity we don't have Sir John Kerr as Governor General today. I am sure he would boot the worst minority rotten government in the history of Federation in this country - the Brown/Gillard/turncoat 'government' of wanton failure, breathtaking incompetence and jaw dropping stupidity in every damned thing it touches. Amen!Sam Sunday 13 November, 2011 - 7:35 AM
