I am often attracted to women of style. Style does not necessarily mean the way someone dresses. God Gough's wife has died yet to call her such is to do her a disservice. Margaret Whitlam was a person in her own right, as all women should be and are of course. While I don't know about our present Prime Minister, in my memory Australia's Prime Ministers' spouses have been been powers in their own right. Dame Pattie Menzies may have been decorative and very proper but activist Prime Ministerial spouses began with Margaret. Tammy Fraser, followed, as did Hazel Hawke, Jeanette Howard and Theresa Rein (Rudd). If they weren't publicly active, they certainly were in the area of spousal pillow talk.
I may be an old loser socialist, but Australia is poorer for the loss of Margaret and what she represented.
Emperor Hirohito and his wife were not tall. Gough and Margaret are/were.
