Dear Phil

I could not agree more about your remarks regarding the need for another Whitlam. Unfortunately their is nobody of any stature in the ALP.
The Hayek and Friedman acolytes are trying to screw the last drop of blood from society and it was most appropriate its origins emerged from the Chicago School of Economics, the city where another notorious gangster plied his trade during the 1920s

I don't think a lot of people appreciate the impact that the Whitlam government had on the Australian psyche Ed.

I guess this is because of the way his government was assessed, mainly in economic terms.

We probably need another Whitlam-like prime minister right now.

The Australian soul definitely needs rescuing.

If I remember correctly, Phil, ABC news readers shifted their accents from quasi-British to 'Australian' not long after the Whitlam government was elected.

Paps, bai mi tok wanem.

Mi mix blut ya.

Na dispela em besti blo mi.

Na mitupela skul wantaim.

Yeaahh Phil, ORE Stralianness? A tick for your tok.

Time blong Tabuna.
