Bob Hawke was a huge figure and someone I deeply admired, liked and learned from, a genuine giant in anyone’s politics. He was an immensely successful leader of Australia but he also impacted all of us round the world who were looking for a sustainable model of Government which combined strong economies with high levels of social justice and investment in the most disadvantaged sections of society. Sharp, with a marvellous strategic political mind, and concealing a first class intellect behind that friendly and ‘good bloke’ exterior, he was wonderful and warm company, and from the first time I met him back in 1982 always willing to reach out and help younger politicians. A true model for so many of us. He will be greatly missed
