Regardless of political stance I think it's safe to say we'll all be a tad sad at the loss of Hawkey.

One of the few politicians who deserves the title "Legend."
Sympathy vote for labor on saturday?
Quintessential Australian larrikin with a commitment to serve.
We won't see his like again. RIP Bob.
We could sure do with a Hawkey today. With another Kerry Packer too. Great men both.

I've turned the ABC off, they announce Hawkeys demise, promise an obit then all we got was bloody Shallow Shorten. Not worth Hawkey's bootlace!

I'm watching a very good obit, covering 'The Silver Fox' through his political life and showing his humour as well as his feisty stubborn arrogance, and giving a very good wrap to a Labor man ... on SKY!

Respect indeed to see Michael Kroeger and other 'Righties' respecting what a truly extraordinary man he was.

He never lost an election. Keating assassinated him, Shorten style.

When Hawke left Labor so did I. It has never been a true Labor Party since Keating led it. It hasn't been any kind of Party.
abc ran the obit for half and hour, after 7:30 report ended.
Sorry but I've had more than enough of the ABC tonight. Sales didn't do too well on trashing Scomo, he's getting better at it by the day. He's looking more relaxed, and enjoying it all more than Bill is.

He called me tonight, Scomo. Yep. "This is Scott Morrison and I'd like to ask ... you to vote for Pat Conaghahan ..yadayada" Robocall! haven't had one before. How the hell is he finding the time to do ads for the Nats?

I'm voting for Conaghan anyway so didn't matter, just surprised me a bit.
robocalls are driving people crazy.
skynews mentioned alex trumble pumped 17,000 robo calls into just one electorate (greg hunts...ha!)
I thought bob hawke was looking wobbly last time we saw him on tv.
like mucky after his operation, -he went the dark side and back again didn't he?

He was looking a lot better in that recent pic don posted.
