Whitlam's 1975 Election Policy Speech

Whitlam's 1975 Election Policy Speech | History | Scoop.it
Full text and audio of Gough Whitlam's 1975 election policy speech, delivered at Festival Hall in Melbourne.
Ben's insight:

Whitlam’s objective is, naturally, to regain Government. How does he seek to convince his audience that they should vote Labour?

 

Taking into account all the emphasises in Whitlam’s speech (his policies and the future of Australian Democracy etc) why do you think people voted against him on the 13th of December 1975?

In office - Gough Whitlam - Australia's PMs - Australia's Prime Ministers | History | Scoop.it
Ben's insight:

The study of Australian History is sometimes seen as boring, especially when it comes to studying our Prime Ministers. This Scoop offers an extremely good overview of one of our more fascinating Prime Ministers, Gough Whitlam. Whitlam’s time in office is fascinating not only for his inspired innovations, but also for the events that ended Labour’s brief period of power.
