May 17, 2019


FIVEaa’s Jeremy Cordeaux reveals he had the inside running a political romance that would soon make headlines around the country…

Jeremy often crossed paths with Bob Hawke during his time at 2GB in Sydney.

“I remember having a talk with Blanche d'Alpuget,” Jeremy reminisced on Thursday night following the news of Mr Hawke’s passing. “They weren’t together."

“But he [Hawke] had obviously been very much involved with Blanche because they had been working on the book, which was a best seller. And here she was in the studio, rambling on about this wonderful man -- the chemistry, the remarkable charisma of this man, his intellect.

“And I looked at her and I said, ‘You’re in love with him aren’t you?’ and she looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Yes, I am.’

“Do you know nobody picked up on that, but they were obviously having an affair and having an affair for quite some time.”
