Bob Hawke's daughter Rosslyn Dillon settles $4.2 million challenge to his will
The battle over Bob Hawke's estate has been settled out of court, avoiding a ugly public dispute. One of his daughters - Rosslyn - was demanding more than $4 million, claiming the $750,000 she was left, wasn't enough. @AirlieWalsh #9News
Bob Hawke was the greatest peacetime leader Australia has ever had. As a teenager Bob inspired me, as a PM he guided me. I will miss him. I wish so very much that Bob had been able to see one more election day. My condolences to Blanche, his children and grandchildren.
The Bob Hawke I admired was the man who saved the Franklin, the Daintree, Kakadu and protected Antarctica from mining. The Bob Hawke I befriended and laughed with every New Year’s Eve was a fellow music fan with Blanche every summer at Woodford Folk Festival. What a life!
Today we lost an Australian legend. Bob Hawke changed everything – for our nation, and for @AustralianLabor . Bob - you were big, bold and brave. Medicare, the economy, the Accord, the environment, Australia’s place in the world.
