Mr Pyne doorstop Adelaide February 3, 2013
Today the Prime Minister has serious questions to answer about how she intends to govern for the next seven months with what is clearly an unravelling government. The Prime Minister needs to confirm whether by elections will be held in the normal course of events, say within two to three months of a resignation and not held off til September in order to keep the Prime Minister’s tenuous hold on power in place. We know that we’ve had the resignations of Nicola Roxon and Chris Evans. We know that Peter Slipper and Craig Thomson are under a legal cloud. Robert McClennand has announced his retirement and has said he’ll be applying for jobs that will take him out of the parliament. There are rumours of other Labor MP’s and frontbenchers to follow and the Prime Minister is leaving very vague whether she will pursue the normal course of events which is by elections within one, two or at most three months of resignations or whether she’ll hold those off until September 14th election date. That’s not good enough for the Australian public.
This government is starting to resemble a scene from “Downfall” and the Prime Minister is presiding over a divided and dysfunctional government.
The Coalition on the other hand has a plan for all for a safe, secure Australia and a strong and prosperous Australia.
We want the government to get it’s act together because if this wasn’t so serious it would be funny.
Did Mr Pyne stay or leave the room?
