Paul Keating’s speechwriter, Don Watson, once remarked that his boss couldn’t resist needling his opponents on the legacy of Robert Menzies. Keating never wavered, Watson said, from the view that Menzies’ “only use was the same as a bit of rag with a cat fur on it thrown to a pack of dogs”.

Robert Menzies was Australia’s greatest prime minister, William McMahon was “despised”, and a young Paul Keating had an obsession with parliamentary entitlements. In the final part of our exclusive interview with Jim Forbes, 90, the last remaining Liberal member of Menzies’ Cabinet, the South Australian recalls the great – and the not.

In the interim he travelled around the world, spending an extended time in Britain during World War II, set up the Liberal Party and, the author argues, developed the leadership qualities that made him so successful. Labor, under Paul Keating, had painted Robert Menzies as an ancient and irrelevant figure and berated the party’s current leaders as figures who were strangers to their own century.
