How many hours after completely washing his hands of it was that ?Avoids last by having the stones to call in the ctu squad in the Sydney siege after 12 hours after NSW police were too squeamish to deal with a terrorist
i love a lot of what whitlam did, BUT i cannot have him in the bestHey Ken finally something political we agree on. He was indeed the best ever cut short by a drunken Governor General. They don't make them like him now days.
There is a lot of stuff we take for granted now that came in during the Whitlam era.Sadly a whole heap has been chopped and gutted by the LNP.i love a lot of what whitlam did, BUT i cannot have him in the best
imo (and as someone who didnt live through the time so has to rely on books), there were two big failures:
1) they tried to do waaaaay too much far too soon. i get why, after 20 years in the wilderness it was the mother of all catch up attempts. the problem was some really good ideas and policy wasnt properly thought out and executed.
2) they didnt keep the people onside. yes their supporters were bolted on, but im talking about those in the middle. Kerr would never have had the balls to do what he did if it was clear there was no public support for what the liberals were doing. a leader without followers is just a dude going for a walk
True. The second the threat was made shots should've wrong out.How many hours after completely washing his hands of it was that ?
Those people were dead the moment he released the " we don't negotiate with terrorists " line.
But i'm glad you've brought it up, it's a favorite subject of mine how the ONLY person who lost their job over that entire shitshow was a labor pollie lol.
