Did Jack Lang deserve to be sacked?
The June 2008 HTA issue of “Teaching History” led me to some fabulous sources for the Jack Lang Question:

In May 1932 the Premier of New South Wales was dismissed by the Governor of New South Wales Sir Philip Game.
It is the only time in Australian history that a New South Wales Premier has been dismissed by the governor.
The only other time something like this happened was the sacking of Prime Minister Whitlam in 1975. (This is a topic we look at in Year 10)

Choose ONE point of view from the data below and, using the heading of your argument, give a response to the question using the sources listed.
