    Peacock also had two goes in 1983-96 term of Labor government. If a leader has two goes in the same spell of opposition they're only counted once (question is leaders not leaderships.)

    By Coalition, does it mean Libs and Nats only? For example, if a party were to coalesce out of the teals and they won in some combination of the 3 parties, does it count?
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.
