The Honourable Edward Gough Whitlam AC QC 1916 - 2014
Today, we remember the life of Gough Whitlam, Australia’s 21st Prime Minister.
Gough Whitlam made a significant contribution to Australian public life and shaped the nation as we know it today.
His contribution to public life extended before and beyond his Prime Ministership; his service to his country in the Royal Australian Air Force and his extensive writings after his parliamentary service were unforgettable influences upon the political giant whom we mourn today.
Although he was a giant of a political movement different to my own, none can deny the impact that Whitlam’s purpose and passion made; an impact which will remain with us as a legacy for many generations to come.
Rest in Peace.
