Right-wing Respect – Malcolm Turnbull

Condolences on the death of Margaret Whitlam
by Malcolm Turnbull MP

This condolence was both respectful and gracious. It was a non-political tribute to a much-loved woman who had contributed enormously to Australian culture, not just for women, but for all Australians. Mr Turnbull knows that Margaret Whitlam was more than just the wife of a Prime Minister.

Compare this with Tony Abbott’s comment:

There was a lot wrong with the Whitlam government but nevertheless it was a very significant episode in our history and Margaret Whitlam was a very significant element in the political success of Gough Whitlam.

Quoted in The Sydney Morning Herald: 17 March 2012

  1. Of course he would only see Margaret Whitlam- as an adjunct to Gough. It sums up his whole attitude to women.

  2. Reblogged this on The Left Hack and commented:
