Tony Abbott led a parliamentary tribute for the late Gough Whitlam who died recently aged 98.
"He is gone but not forgotten… he did many things for Australia and truly transformed it into the land we know today. He introduced universal healthcare, no fault divorce, free tertiary education - thanks for that by the way, glad that stuck around long enough for my friend’s to get it before it went away - established the racial discrimination act, opened relations with China, expanded our Immigration program, blocked moves to allow drilling on the great barrier reef and more. Truly he was a well accomplished man despite his unfortunate retirement from the position of Prime Minister."
Everyone had a silent moment of solemn thought and reverence for the fallen giant. Tony interrupted it with a thunderous clap.
"Well, come on then team… we’ve got work to do destroying what’s left of what he’s done for Australia. His legacy won’t die with him if we stand here all day. There’s rampant inequality to achieve!"
