Bronwyn Bishop Dumped as Parliamentary Speaker!
Controversial Parliamentary Speaker and LNP stooge Bronwyn Bishop has been dumped from her role in a shock announcement from PM Tony Abbott.
Ms Bishop is a staunch ally of Mr Abbott, with the PM once describing himself as the “political love child” of Ms Bishop and Former Prime Minister John Howard.
Speaking at a two-flag press conference on Sunday afternoon, Tony Abbott said Ms Bishop will be handing in her resignation to the Governor General.
Mr Abbott quickly moved on from the resignation announcement to focus on the expenses system in general.
“There will be fundamental review of members of parliament’s entitlements… A very wide ranging review, not just tinkering” he said.
If Ms Bishop hasn’t done anything wrong why is she resigning?
“Obviously Bronwyn Bishop is a friend of mine” he said.
He refused to drawn on questions about Ms Bishop’s resignation and simply repeated what he said earlier:
“The important thing to realise is that this isn’t about one individual.”
“I have a great deal of respect for Bronwyn Bishop… She has certainly done the right thing today” he said.
In a statement, Ms Bishop said the she had resigned out of “love and respect.”
