80 years on since Pig Iron Bob: new documentary has contemporary relevance

November this year marks 80 years since the Dalfram dispute, wherein then federal minister, soon to be PM, Robert Menzies, earned the nick-name ‘Pig Iron Bob’ for what seemed his excessive eagerness to sell to Japan material which had a good chance of coming back to us as bombs – and probably did.

There’s a new doco, The Dalfram Dispute, which you can see here. All very apposite, with the keenness of the current government to get into the export of offensive weapons and related stuff.
