Bass By-Election: Labor In Need Of A Miracle

Labor was annihilated in the Bass by-election on June 28, 1975.

This is the “Politically Speaking” column by Laurie Oakes in the Melbourne Sun on the morning of the by-election.

The by-election was caused by the resignation of Whitlam’s first deputy prime minister, Lance Barnard.
