The following 'Quotes' were hailed, at the time of their making, to be significant milestones in Australian political history.

Some were, the rest could at best be described as 'deception of the Australian people' or at worst, have been proven to be 'blatant lies'.

You be the JUDGE.

Should you be aware of a 'MEMORABLE QUOTE'... please e-mail it to the WebMaster for inclusion onto this page.
