Sack Call On Liberal Plotters

In May 1989, a well-planned coup toppled John Howard and re-installed Andrew Peacock as leader of the Liberal Party.

John Moore and Wilson Tuckey were the main spokesmen for the plotters.

In this Channel 9 News segment, Laurie Oakes reports on calls within the Liberal Party to discipline Moore and Tuckey.
