Labor itself was kept out of office until it won just as the great depression struck in 1929. Policy indecision and scandal ensured the disintegration of the Scullin government and its defeat in 1932. This period saw a major split in the Labor Party and the creation of a Federal Labor Party which contested the 1931 and 1934 federal elections in the face of rival Labor groupings, particularly in New South Wales (Hogan and Clune 2001, vol. 2).

The Whitlam period of government from 1972 to 1975 has been the source of legend; it was activist and often creative, but lacked the discipline and economic wisdom to survive for long.
