Journalist, parliamentarian, editor, author and Spectator Australia columnist Peter Coleman has died in Sydney at the age of 90.

He was perhaps the last of his kind, a public intellectual who not only supported the Liberal Party, but also represented it in both the New South Wales and federal parliaments.
