The Whitlam dismissal was a travesty. And I don't like Whitlam at all. But I do despise the political elite using their power to over-rule the will of the people. It never works out in the end and the Whitlam dismissal created a distrust between Australians and politicians that runs deep to this day.
The ABC - who see Whitlam as second only to Nelson Mandela in terms of godliness - will be running with this for days.
The days of left leaning ABC are decades ago ... every inquiry has disproved any perceived bias and just check the number of ex Murdoch flunkies who work there now
