Book description

Bill Barry was a close witness to one of the most significant events in Australia’s political history. He is the son of William “Bill” Barry, who resigned from the ALP when the party split in 1955, and became leader of the Labour Party (Anti Communist) in the Victorian Legislative Assembly, later the Democratic Labor Party (DLP). This move effectively ended his political career.

Barry junior gives an intimate picture of the beginnings of the Split and believes it is beyond reasonable doubt that ALP leader Herbert “Doc” Evatt started the process that led to the Split when he moved to expel the anti-communist Industrial Groups (“Groupers”) from the ALP. Evatt denounced the Victorian Groupers, and put the blame on the “malign influence” of B.A. (Bob) Santamaria, leader of the Movement.

Barry junior writes that although the aims of the DLP and Bob Santamaria’s Movement coincided to a great degree, especially in the epoch when the communist threat was very real, Barry senior was not notably involved with Santamaria’s Catholic Social Studies Movement. The relationship, Barry junior clarifies, between the DLP and the Movement, today’s National Civic Council (NCC), was not always harmonious. Sometimes the two they cooperated, sometimes they did not.

Barry had a happy childhood, inferring that his father had a soft heart, although others report that he had a “good line in invective and was not short of ambition”.
