Prime ministerial prerogative also emerged as an issue in 34 Prime Ministers in Power Australia in May 2003, in relation to the case of Governor-General Hollingworth. Howard chose not to exercise his power to advise the Queen that the governor-general should be removed from office, following a report which found Hollingworth, in his former role as Archbishop of Brisbane, had allowed a known paedophile to continue working as an Anglican priest. The subsequent furore (and inevitable departure of Hollingworth) raised questions relating to the prime minister’s sole power to recommend governor-general appointments (and indeed removals) to the Queen, and whether this was an appropriate method of selection for the position (Williams 2003).
For Encel, writing in the 1960s on Australian cabinet government, personality could be decisive. Australian prime ministers were a ‘heterogeneous collection’, characterised variously as either larrikins (Fadden, Hughes, Gorton) or ‘prima donnas’ (Deakin, Bruce, Curtin, Menzies, Whitlam). Larrikins were tough, independent and aggressive leaders, while prima donnas had a sense of absolute superiority (Encel 1962: 249; Walter 2006a: 318). 11 Little’s typology of ‘political ensembles’ related to three groups of leaders: strong; group and inspiring.
For instance, Blair’s style of leadership impacted on the institutional arrangements. A prime minister may be constrained in some areas, but has a strong hand in others. Alternatively, if a prime minister makes errors of judgement, political capital can quickly ebb away (Bennister 2008). It is important to differentiate between the potential resources a prime minister has to draw on and the role or functions of the position. 20 Prime Ministers in Power Resources are not sufficient on their own to confer predominance; it is the effective use of them that is the key.
