Vale Gough Whitlam.
We mourn the loss of Gough Whitlam, former Prime Minister of Australia (1972-1975) and Labor Leader (1967-1977).
Gough redefined Australia through his relentless pursuit of social justice, the effects of which are still felt today. He left a legacy of accessible education, affordable healthcare, and indigenous recognition in Australia.
Bill Shorten and much of the Labor caucus gave condolence speeches on Gough's legacy.
