On another thread I offered the commented that “We don’t get enough moments like that in Australian politics anymore.” Not being in a reflective mood this weekend, I ask Troppodillians to share their favourite moments in Oz politics.

My favourite is from the 1974 election campaign. After touring the country to get a feel for the pulse, Liberal Opposition leads Billy Snedden told the country “Everywhere I go people know that something is wrong.”

This follows a close second to Clyde Cameron, Whitlam’s Minister for IR, who exclaimed, statesman-like with his finger gesticulating at the heavens, “I look forward to a time when every Australian worker will earn more than the average wage!”
