Oily United Nations fundraiser Benon Sevan and pompous Australian economy-wrecker Gough Whitlam.

They both look like they're watching the ice cream truck go off a cliff!

Blow me down with a feather, genetic engi8neering was already viable that long ago: no wonde they hushed it up, the result are goddamned terrifying.

In 1976, Whitlam supported the notion that Labor should seek a secret loan from Saddam's Baath Party to fund the 1975 election campaign. Even Whitlam regards his policy as having been insane. Lucky Sevan - well, his alleged theft is in a whole other order of magnitude.

Gough would admire the bigness of his lost brother's vision.

'Cash through or cash'? Cash please.

No no no - that's not the sainted Gough. That's Sir Les Patterson.

Gough Whitlam ? Isn't he the poster child for the Monarchists in Australia ?

Benan Sevan - turned a blind eye while a vicious dictator embezzled a country's wealth.

Gough Whitlam - turned a blind eye while a vicious dictator invaded and embezzled a country's wealth.
