@TonyAbbottMHR You’re trying to score political points from the death of one of Australia’s greatest public figures within hours of his passing? Hawke was a giant. You are a tawdry little pissant. Long may you rot in obscurity. #BobHawke.

Beautiful piece by Tony Wright on #BobHawke “Farewell to a towering little bloke who once made a reporter feel 10 feet tall”.

This is so f***ing good about #BobHawke and politicians who used to stand for something. Read it..

There were two pieces I was looking forward to in print about #BobHawke ‘s death: Paul Kelly’s and ⁦@tonyowright⁩ ‘s. Tony has written a piece for the ages. Well done, old chum. x.

Long after the white noise and the hurly burly of reporting on his government had faded, what remains clear is the sheer scope of Bob Hawke’s dazzling flexibility of mind and openness to different ideas. @latingle #bobhawke #auspol.

Well said @VickiTreadell, couldn’t have put it better. My condolences to the family and friends of #BobHawke and to the people of Australia..

My brush with years ago I was a guest speaker at a large @MissionAust fundraising event and Bob Hawke was the host. After I gave my speech he came up to me at the dinner table and gave me a shoulder rub and said “you do some wonderful work” thanks #bobhawke.

A choir sings Solidarity Forever to close tonight’s #BobHawke tribute at Trades Hall.

Me having a beer for #BobHawke tonight just after I signed the @UnionsACT condolence book #auspol ❤️.

We are richer for his life. Tributes continue to flow for former Prime Minister Bob Hawke. | @ursulaheger #BobHawke #AusPol.

Hey @scg if you don’t permanently name a bar at the ground after #BobHawke you’re a bum!.

I can’t fathom how the death of an 89 year-old, whose ill-health was well known, would cause ‘shockwaves’. It’s a sad, poignant moment when any influential giant of our history passes, but this is gross over-dramatisation #auspol #BobHawke.

@hughriminton #BobHawke would never have used refugees as political pawns to further his ambitions..

I remember that night well!!! What an evening. Bob Hawke was in terrific form and hearing this audio takes me back. Thanks @Advance and @antd #BobHawke.

Flags half-mast at Sydney Uni for Hawkey today. 🇦🇺😢🗳️ #auspol #BobHawke.

#BobHawke won four general elections and invested the Labor Party with a governing ethos that it had rarely displayed before in national politics, writes Paul Kelly. #auspol.

Cabinet papers showed #BobHawke made the unilateral decision to allow Chinese students to stay after Tiananmen Square. “I have a deep love for the Chinese people. I was told: ‘You cannot do that, prime minister.’ I said to them, ‘I just did. It is done.’ ”.

@jason_om Bob’s response was compassionate and courageous. A visionary improvement to migration policy. He also built friendly, constructive relationships with the Chinese leadership for our mutual benefit. Rare and admirable leadership. #BobHawke #BobHawkeRIP @BreakfastNews.

I listened to Scott Morrison’s very gracious speech about #BobHawke ... and I have to say, #ScoMo is really growing into the ‘former PM’.

Seeing all the footage of the #BobHawke years in government makes me even sadder to think where we are now in Federal Politics. #Auspol.

In Memory To The Right Honourable : @BobHawke_PM AC , GCL Who was the 23rd Prime Minister of Australia and Leader of The Labor Party From 1983 to 1991. He is The Third-Longest-Serving Prime Minister of Australia by Total Time in Office ( 8 Years , 284 Days ). Rest in Peace..

Shut up Billy boy!! SHUT UP! Bob Hawkes passing is not about you, you little flea! @SkyNewsAust #bobhawke.

I would rather lose an election than allow this country to descend by default into the abyss of discrimination. To allow that descent would be both morally repugnant and economically insane. Bob Hawke in 1998 #BobHawke.

A beautiful tribute to Bob Hawke by Paul Keating - a poignant reminder that leadership requires imagination & courage. #BobHawke.
