nonsensical Whitlam reference No. 235
They really need to check the water coolers at the Sydney Morning Herald. From an article exploring the strength of Australia's female swimming team:
"Australia hasn't had such a powerful women's swimming team since 1972 when Gough Whitlam was swept to power with the famous "It's Time" slogan."
Or to put it another way
"Australia hasn't had such a powerful women's swimming team since the 1972 Munich Olympics"
Or are they trying to suggest that a 15 year old Shane Gould was so inspired by Gough's victory that she swept all before her to claim her 5 medals?
