Gough Whitlam, 1916-2014

“No Prime Minister changed Australia more than Gough Whitlam . . . he did it in less than three years . . . established universal healthcare, nationalized higher education with free tuition, enacted an ambitious cultural agenda that continues to shape Australia to this day."
"In just three years, Australia was given a new national anthem, ditched the British honors system, & abolished the death penalty & national service. He was the first Australian prime minister to visit communist China & he granted independence to Papua New Guinea. Whitlam also passed the Racial Discrimination Act. His Government bought Blue Poles.”

Julia Gillard on Gough Whitlam: A man of the highest political courage, our former prime minister transformed Australia and we are in his debt
