Bill, having replaced as opposition leader a once hugely popular and successful leader of the ALP, faced PM Mal at the next election. He lost, but magnificently narrowed the two-party preferred margin to 0.8 per cent. That election was in 1980, of course. In 2016 that margin is 0.74 per cent, otherwise the story and the names are the same.
