Did Mr Pyne stay or leave the room?

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.

  1. Addressing the media in Adelaide yesterday, Christopher Pyne said this:

    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 normal courses of events, say, within 2-3 months of a resignation and not held off until September in order to keep the prime minister’s tenuous hold on power in place. We know 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 McLelland has announced his retirement and he will be applying for a job which could take him out of the parliament. There are rumours of other Labor MPs and front benchers 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 resignation or whether she will hold those off until September 14 election date. That’s not good enough for the Australian public.

    Christopher Pyne twisting the facts once again.

    It’s also not good enough that we have a Shadow Minister and Manager of Opposition Business in the House of Representatives who is ignorant of the fact that in a federal by-election the Speaker of the House of Representatives issues the writ for the electorate and sets the by-election date, not the prime minister.

    • A Speaker of the House of Reps who is by and large appointed by the sitting PM. No twisting of the facts. Pyne is just asking a question we all want to know. Me-thinks higgs boson is trying just a little too hard.
