Awesome: Australian Politics
  • Gough Whitlam's speech after he got sacked certainly qualifies. In less than one hour he wrote this. Well may we say "God save the Queen", because nothing will save the Governor-General! The Proclamation which you have just heard read by the Governor-General's Official Secretary was countersigned Malcolm Fraser, who will undoubtedly go down in Australian history from Remembrance Day 1975 as Kerr's cur. They won't silence the outskirts of Parliament House, even if the inside has been silenced for a few weeks ... Maintain your rage and enthusiasm for the campaign for the election now to be held and until polling day.
  • Tony Abbott motions for Julia Gillard to have Peter Slipper resign over misogynist conduct. Gillard not only opposes it, but then lays into Abbott for a good 15 minutes, outlining instances where he conducted himself in a similar manner. How Abbott managed to get voted in in the next federal election is quite beyond the capacity of any rational Australian.
  • Kevin Rudd destroying Julia Gillard's political career three years after she stabbed him in the back.
