Inside word on Newman is he's going to retire halfway into the second term (finds most of the job boring apparently), though the other scuttlebut is he get's tapped on the shoulder so the N part of the LNP can reclaim it's birthright.

the cab dispute is interesting...the cab owners - many in hock to the banks - bought cab licenses for $600K plus...the current tories do not like the idea of prols making a quid and propose to turn the license value meter back to 0...and the dills wonder why the cabbies are upset

Vic independent MP sides with opposition

November 12, 2013 - 6:53PM
AAP

Independent Victorian MP Geoff Shaw has sided with the Labor opposition to stall government business and express no confidence in the Speaker.

Mr Shaw sided with the Labor Party in parliament on a vote which means government business cannot proceed and legislation cannot be put or passed this week.

"I think parliament's been degraded by people in this place, by the opposition, but by the person who runs it the most, the position of speaker," Mr Shaw told parliament on Tuesday.

Jacinta Allan, manager of opposition business, said the vote is unprecedented and the Napthine government is paralysed and in disarray.

"For the first time ever the government has lost a vote on the introduction of a government business program," she said.

"It's clear the government Denis Napthine leads doesn't have the support of the parliament."

Ms Allan said the Speaker, Liberal MP Ken Smith, does not have the support of the majority of the house and has no option but to consider his position.

Labor has for some time raised concerns about the Speaker's conduct in his role.

Mr Shaw made it clear to the opposition before the vote about losing confidence in the office of Speaker, Ms Allan said.

But manager of government business Louise Asher said she was "completely relaxed" about the situation and it simply means the lower house will now operate as the upper house.

"The house will have to handle each bill, bill by bill, and if necessary clause by clause."

Ms Asher says the Speaker will remain as there was no vote in relation to him.

"The real issue for the government is how Mr Shaw will vote on the bills.

"The situation is the Speaker is still in the chair and the government will debate a series of bills throughout the week and the lower house will have to behave like the upper house."

Debate is continuing in the parliament on the first bill and a vote will be taken when all MPs who want to have spoken on it.

Mr Shaw controls the balance of power in the Victorian parliament.

He quit the Liberal Party in March and moved to the crossbenches. His vote keeps the government in power.

PMSL at the Pinkos. Factional wrangling makes SA Premier threaten to quit.

"LABOR senator and powerbroker Don Farrell has withdrawn his bid for a safe South Australian seat after Premier Jay Weatherill threatened to quit over the move.
...
As revealed exclusively by The Australian today, Finance Minister Michael O'Brien had agreed not to contest Napier to make way for Senator Farrell, a powerful Right "godfather'' and one of the so-called "faceless men'' who knifed Kevin Rudd, to be parachuted into state politics.

But the revelation provoked open warfare in the Labor Party, only five weeks out of the state election due on March 15."


------------------------------------------

Weatherill chucks a tanty to stop left-faction Pharrell standing in Napier.

So Pharrell and O'Brien are both now gone from public office (both apparently* highly respected pollies) - yet Bill Shock Shortarse still keeps Pharrell on the Fed Shadow front bench.

Of course, Ruggy Wong cost Pharrell his Senate seat. What a pack of qunts the Pinkos are.

Pinkos, always eating themselves from the inside out.  Laughing

speaker of the Victorian parliament has just resigned but not before emptying buckets onto the 'independent' Lib Geoff Shaw. parliament had just resumed at 2.00 for the 1st session of the year...and has now gone into recess for an hour to enable agreement on a new Speaker...the labs will most likely support the Libs nominee....the libs rely on Shaw to have a single vote majority on the floor of parliament

Polls have just closed in Tas with the Libs expected to get a clear majority. Sozzie polls close in 30 minutes with the same result predicted albeit a much tighter contest.

Bye bye Lara; and good riddance. Whatever follows cannot possibly be worse.

The election result could only have been sweeter if Bryan Green, McKim, and Cassie the bunny boiler had all lost their seats as well.

I must say I was fascinated to watch the rather malevolent Abetz's constant baiting of O'Connor last night on the coverage. It was a bit like watching taipan baiting Red ... 100% of the hooks got frantic bites, sometimes two bites per hook.

Hopeless Greens politician who despite established cluelessness would, if she were a trout, bite repeatedly at a manky bit of string.

Eric is a bit nasty but I enjoyed watching him at work last night. He made her look especially foolish without ever breaking a sweat.

Congrats to Tozzies for having elected the Good Guys to power again. Might get the state heading in the right direction. And kudos on kicking the Greens up the date.

meanwhile corruption allegations continue in Victoria among the blues...nasty infighting over pre selections for the next state election (Nov this year)...Pope Andrews  and Kroger the Gorgon are trying to ensure only people opposed to the abortion, sole parents and the basic wage and who suppport the tooth fairy get preselection
 
it is getting very nasty...admit to feeling a bit sorry for Premier Napthine ('mothballs') and former Prem Baillieau ('top end ted') who are fundamentally decent people
