Fraser was installed as the caretaker. He stormed into office all right as I well remember and I cheered Whitlam’s dismissal on the basis that his government was utterly dysfunctional except for Bill Hayden. The people thought so too. I have since realised the skullduggery behind it, but we really had to have an election I thought. This was also brought about by Gough’s overwhelming arrogance. Alas he was not quite the gift from God he thought himself to be. I voted for him in the double dissolution, being my first vote.
