40th Anniversary of the Dismissal: November 11, 2015

Posted by on Oct 25, 2015

I’ve delved into my archives to re-publish an article that I wrote twenty years ago which deals with the dismissal of the Australian Whitlam Government on November 11, 1975. While this is a fiction website, twenty years ago I was also writing non-fiction, and this was quite a hot topic at the time. This article was first published in Probable Cause magazine, and was then re-published in other magazines and online websites as well. A quick Google search recently showed that the article had disappeared online, with the various websites no longer in existance. So, I feel it’s a very good opportunity (and timely too) to republish this article here as part of my website… both as an interesting piece for my readers, and also as an alternative to current history books. I’m quite often asked about this piece (and it is referenced on many political websites too) so it’s nice to finally have a proper place for it on the web…which won’t disappear! The article caused some furore in Newscorp at the time (where I was working), with a particular journalist taking exception to another view of events. Fun times! Enjoy! ~~ COUP D’ETAT IN AUSTRALIA
 HOW THE CIA DID A DALLAS, 1963, 
DOWN UNDER IN 1975! 
BY STEVE GERLACH “THE WRONG PEOPLE” Former CIA agent Victor Marchetti explained the US-Australian relationship very well: “Australia is going to be increasingly important to the United States, and so long as Australians keep electing the right people then there’ll be a stable relationship between the two countries.” (Secret Country, p. 353). For 23 years before 1972, the Australian people had been electing the “right people,” the Liberal-National Country Party Coalition headed for most of that period by Robert Menzies. The Coalition was essentially conservative, and had a foreign policy which was sycophantic, to say the least. Menzies himself actually despised Australia, and would much rather have been the Prime Minister of Britain. He once said, “A sick feeling of repugnance grows in me as I near Australia.” He hated his country so much, and loved England enough to beg the British government to conduct their nuclear bomb tests from 1952 to 1958 in the Australian deserts at Maralinga (home of thirteen Aboriginal settlements). Menzies agreed to the testing without even consulting his cabinet. As John Pilger says, “Australia gained the distinction of becoming the only country in the world to have supplied uranium for nuclear bombs which its Prime Minister allowed to be dropped by a foreign power on his own people without adequate warning.” (A Secret Country, p. 168). Later Liberal Prime Ministers turned their sycophancy towards the United States. John Gorton said in 1969 “We will go a-waltzing Matilda with you,” and Harold Holt coined the phrase “All the way with LBJ” when sending Australian troops to the Vietnam War. Again, the Liberal government was so desperate to...
