Additional Notes Circular black badge with slogan 'Shame Fraser, shame' in white.

The 1975 election campaign was fought against the background of the dismissal of the Whitlam government by Governor General Sir John Kerr on 11 November and replaced by a caretaker Liberal/National Country Party government led by Malcolm Fraser. Whitlam’s 1975 election campaign called on Australians to reject the new government as having come to power through unjust means. Badges worn by Labor supporters featured slogans such as ’Shame Fraser Shame’ and ‘Cheats Shouldn’t Prosper’. The slogan and message is indicative of the mood of Labor supporters, who believed Whitlam had been ‘cheated’ and unjustly dismissed and was the rightful prime minister.
