Wielding an orator’s grandeur, a brilliant mind and a bulletproof self-belief, Gough Whitlam employed a “crash or crash through” approach to life and politics. He spent over 20 years fighting civil wars inside the Labor Party before eventually leading them to power. He was hailed as a Labor Messiah “but when he fell, he fell harder than any politician in Australian history”. Gough Whitlam modernised the lives of Australian people, and for that he was more loved and more hated than any Australian leader before or since.
