Remembering Bob
Bob Hawke will be deservedly remembered among Australians, and indeed the global community, not only as a politician of great talent and principle, but as a man who was passionate about community and consensus, the economy, education, environmental issues, equality and the promotion of an inclusive and diverse community, global initiatives, social justice, not to mention beer, cricket and the America's Cup.
