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. Whitlam then lost the election to Malcolm Fraser's Liberals in a landslide. Good speaker and great Prime Minster that was plagued with a substandard government that led to people voting for the Liberals.
  • 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.
  • Kevin Rudd destroying Julia Gillard's political career three years after she stabbed him in the back.
