Have other viewers of the ABC noticed the ads for a new two part documentary focusing on Gough? I actually voted for Gough in both 1972 and 1975 but that was well before I had my personal epiphany that the Labor party is irrevocably flawed and far from the best people to govern the wide brown land.
That said I can’t for the life of me ignore the timing of this presentation from Auntie what it amount to is two hours of pro ALP propaganda from the supposedly “balanced” ABC. I am sure that the current government will be gleeful that the national broadcaster is running a program that may help to bring at least a few of the stray voters back to the fold based entirely on the warmth and sentimentality for Saint Gough. Its really a sad indictment of the Gillard government that Gough is considered a better example of Labor virtues.
On top of all of this we have had endless eulogising of Hazel Hawke on the ABC ….
That’s a very sad sigh from me Comrades
