Margaret Whitlam (letter)


by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, October 28, 2006

Sir,

I was pleased to see such a strong public reaction to Margaret Whitlam's catty comments about the fact that Prime Minister John Howard and his wife hold hands in public.

Mrs Whitlam and her husband would not be aware of the fact that she (Margaret) has the distinction of being married to the most disastrous prime minister Australia has ever suffered.

Also she's probably jealous, not getting the chance to hold her husband's hand, because Gough has spent his whole career walking down lovers' lane holding his own hand.

Frank Bellet
Petrie, Qld.
