The secret papers of John Kerr

12.02.2018.

The Breakfasters sit down with Jenny Hocking to talk about her latest article for the Griffith Review, ‘Relics of Colonialism’, a piece that re-assesses the conventional understanding of how Governor General John Kerr dismissed then Prime Minister, Gogh Whitlam and the palace’s intervention in that dismissal. Jenny talks about her federal court action to access the personal papers of Kerr, as well as letters sent between himself and the crown that discuss political matters. She also chats about the need for an Australian republic in terms of obtaining true democracy and bringing the discussion back onto the forefront of the political agenda.
