Liberal Party Advertisement: Malcolm Fraser, Andrew Peacock And Ian MacPhee

This is a Liberal Party advertisement broadcast on February 28, 1983, during the federal election campaign.

In retrospect, it is quite an interesting item. It features Malcolm Fraser, Andrew Peacock and Ian MacPhee.

Andrew Peacock returned to the Cabinet in 1982, following his resignation some months earlier. His attack on Fraser precitipated a leadership challenge that Fraser won easily. Peacock succeeded Fraser as leader after the 1983 election.

Ian MacPhee was a Victorian Liberal, aligned to the moderate forces in the party. He lost his preselection in 1989 to David Kemp and left parliament at the 1990 election.
