"I thought as long as he's the Minister for Foreign Affairs, I might as well give him one he'll never forget."
- American actress Shirley MacLaine
on her affair with Australian politician Andrew Peacock,
from her book I'm Over All That And Other Confessions.
Peacock, who died last week aged 82, served twice as leader of the Liberal Party (1983–1985 and 1989–1990), leading the party to defeat at the 1984 and 1990 elections. He had earlier been a long-serving cabinet minister, including as Minister for Foreign Affairs.
