Obituary: Gough Whitlam

Australia’s 21st prime minister and a titan of the Australian Labor Party, Edward Gough Whitlam, has died, aged 98.

Mr Whitlam leaves a legacy of unprecedented and unmatched change in Australian politics.

Arguably, he was as much lauded for his reformist leadership and eloquence as he was lambasted for his autocratic style and profligacy.

But it is for being at the centre of Australia’s most ferocious political storm, the Dismissal, that Gough Whitlam will forever be remembered — via redwolf.newsvine.com
