A wonderful piece of political lampooning here in this Election Money note.
Issued by the Liberal party in the elections just prior to Keating being voted in as prime minister.
During his time as Treasurer under Bob Hawke, the Australian dollar was floated, the financial sector deregulated, certain state sector industries were privatised, a capital gains tax was introduced, and a Prices and Incomes Accord was struck. In 1990 he was elected Deputy Leader of the Labor Party and made Deputy Prime Minister.
Keating later challenged Hawke for the leadership in June 1991 and resigned from the ministry following his defeat. Six months later he challenged Hawke again, this time successfully, and subsequently became Prime Minister. He would go on to deliver the Labor government a record fifth consecutive victory and a record 13 years in government.
This piece of Election Money is quite rare and a great item from the turbulent political history of the time.
