Men and Women of Australia! The decision we will make for our country on 2 December is a choice between the past and the future, between the habits and fears of the past, and the demands and opportunities of the future. There are moments in history when the whole fate and future of nations can be decided by a single decision. For Australia, this is such a time.
Gough Whitlam - 13 November 1972
Well might we say 'God save the Queen', because nothing will save the Governor General!
