Saddened by Gough Whitlam’s passing. His time as Prime Minister still stands as a remarkable era of change for Australia and will, I believe, be remembered as the period that we grew up as a nation. I had coffee with Gough and his minders in Hobart in 1976 – he was surprisingly unpretentious for someone with huge charisma and ego. Intellectually he was a giant, as well as being highly intuitive. A great human being, who left a tremendous legacy for our country. Thanks Gough.
