Twenty years to the day following the dismissal of E.G. Whitlam, a very lively public forum was held to discuss the events of that day, the advice given to both Gough Whitlam and John Kerr, and the ramifications for this country. The distinguished panel included former Minister, the late 'Diamond' Jim McClelland, former political correspondent for the Canberra Times, the late Gaye Davidson, former broadcaster and leader of the Australian Democrats, the late Don Chipp, and Cheryl Saunders, now Laureate Professor and Director of Studies in Government Law from Melbourne University.
