Six months is going to be a long time in politics

The Morrison government has lost another seat in federal parliament, with Julia Banks announcing she will immediately move to the crossbench as an independent.

Ms Banks, the member for Chisholm, announced she will sit as an independent for the rest of the parliamentary term, plunging Scott Morrison further into minority government.

However Ms Banks said she would give the government support on key issues of confidence and supply.

    All the libs can do is look for a job. Most of them are finished in parliament.

  2. mh

    Let me guess….she wanted tougher action on climate change?

  3. Craig

    Can’t blame her, not sure what the liberals stand for these days.

  4. candy

    Now she’s no longer LNP she can finally name the names of her abusers and the bullies during the leadership spill.

    She made a big deal of it, so why not follow through. But she will be looking for preference deals and so on to keep a seat, so I doubt it.

  5. It just shits me that a politician can do this with impunity. My view is that if they want to do this, the only way is to resign and a by-election be called for the seat the member held. She was voted in as a member of a particular party, not as an independent. Their pension eligibility should also be reset to zero.

  6. pete m

    Agree with you bemused, save that the cost of the by election should be solely paid for by the resigning member.

  7. Caveman

    That will be the last you see of Julia Banks, she wont win her seat at the next election. She hasnt the ballz to name and shame, why would an electorate vote for her. Waiting for her apperance on QnA.

  8. Bruce of Newcastle

    It’s an excellent time for any conservative LNP MPs to likewise defect to the cross bench.

    You are going to lose your seats in the wipeout anyway, and that’s if you haven’t already been turfed from preselection. Which will happen even if you survive the election.

    So why not make a statement now? You cannot save the Liberal Party because it has been colonized and taken over by the Left. They can never, ever be removed once they get control of an organization.

    Conservative voters will not vote for a green-progressive Liberal Party. It is a moral position that cannot be overcome unless the lies are ditched – which means all the progressive lefty policies so loved by the current Lib Party elite.

    Defect now, while you can still get press coverage. There’ll be no press coverage when you lose your seat in the upcoming election.

  9. None

    I keep saying it: get rid of every woman in politics; they are all useless useless useless incompetent l*ing sh*ts or hanging off the coattails of some man in order to benefit themselves. They are a disgrace to my biological sex. I do not want women in Parliament- they just damage the girl brand. If the Victorian Liberal Party had any cojones they’d immediately announce their new candidate and start campaigning now and really put the boot in. But the Liberals are just lettuce leafs.

  10. Roger

    Hell hath no fury like a Liberal parliamentary non-entity scorned.

    No one would have ever heard of the cloth-eared bint if she hadn’t spat the dummy over Turnbull.

    Still, good on her for helping destroy the Liberal Party. Serves them right for allowing socialists like her to join.

    Dot,

    Naming Margaret Thatcher is not a refute of the argument that women are crap in politics.

    She was an outlier, and she’s dead.

  14. Deplorable

    Agree Jules and the ex liberal stooge has the hide to criticise the right in the liberals. If they didn’t have the left green trash like Banks ,Turnbull,Pyne , etc we would not be having this conversation. Throw out all the homosexuals and socialists they are not a good fit for a centre right party.

    A Friend lives in her electorate has never seen her or had anything from her .
    She is also the one who walked out of an address she was going to our group when she found out only 2 in her electorate. She treated Liberal women the same way.
    She told us she married a man with an English name together rid of her Greek name.
    Hope she gets done like a dinner if she nominates again.

  17. C.L.

    Ditching party affiliation should only be allowed if the relevant MP foregoes all pay until such time as the electorate endorses him or her at the next election. A contract has been broken, after all.

  18. Robber Baron

    We are living through the most interesting politcal era since Whitlam. Back then Fraser was hated but was ahead in the polls. It was just a matter of time before he took up residence at the lodge. The incompetent Whitlam was dead man walking. Labor MPs had the look of shock on their faces, much like the ones we are seeing from Liberal MPs.

    The libs know they are gone and are desperate. Expect more confused policy. Expect more spending. Expect them to say or do anything to survive. But the public won’t trust them again this cycle. They blew it the day Abbott was rolled.

  19. H B Bear

    When did the LNP have it’s last big election win?
    What platform and policies were you running with when this occurred?

    The ALPBC are going to reed a bigger speed dial. Dr John and Fat Mandy must be having a few sleepless nights as the co-op’s “go-to” Lieborals. There will be dozens in six months time.

  20. H B Bear

    Can’t blame her, not sure what the liberals stand for these day

    Fadden, Sir Arthur William (1894–1973)
    by Margaret Bridson Cribb

    This article was published in Australian Dictionary of Biography,
    Volume 14, (MUP), 1996

    Under increasing pressure from elements within the coalition, Menzies resigned the prime ministership on 28 August 1941. A joint party meeting chose Fadden as his successor and he was commissioned next day. ‘The comparative tranquillity in party relations’ which Fadden had achieved in his term as acting prime minister may have been a factor in his selection, and he had earned respect for his down-to-earth manner, his friendliness and his capacity for hard work. His government, however, lasted only forty days.

    Previous administrations had been criticized for their lack of urgency in placing the nation on the necessary wartime footing. Fadden’s government suffered similar jibes. He was irresolute in dealing with problems, and had difficulty in coping with U.A.P. colleagues too engrossed in political intrigues and personal animosities to give him the support he needed. In contrast, from Curtin, the leader of the Opposition, he received ‘friendship . . . co-operation, understanding and loyalty’ in difficult times. Curtin’s backing was important when Fadden renewed Menzies’ earlier representations to the British prime minister, (Sir) Winston Churchill, to relieve the Australian 9th Division at Tobruk, Libya, and to reassemble the Australian Imperial Force in the Middle East as one formation.

    Despite Fadden’s denials, some believed that he had plotted Menzies’ downfall. Aware of Menzies’ suspicions, Fadden thought that Joseph Winkler, a former officer in the Prime Minister’s Department, had told Menzies that he was a conspirator. On 13 September 1941 Winkler gave Curtin copies of official documents which were potentially embarrassing to Fadden. Curtin declined to take political advantage of the matter and attacked Fadden’s budget instead. On 3 October the government was defeated on the floor of the House by 36 votes to 33, two Independents—Alexander Wilson and (Sir) Arthur Coles—voting with the Labor Party. Fadden resigned and led the conservatives into Opposition. Curtin took office on 7 October. Defeated at the 1943 elections, the coalition broke apart and Menzies became leader of the Opposition.
    As Labor introduced successive measures to expand the role of government in the economy, Fadden campaigned against what he saw as the imposition of socialism. He urged electors to vote ‘No’ in the ‘fourteen powers’ referendum of 1944. After World War II he condemned J. B. Chifley’s government for its plans to nationalize the banks and for its alleged ‘soft line on communism’. Reinvigorated, ‘united, determined and loyal’, the Country Party formed a cohesive force behind Fadden. By 1949 the party was prepared to make an electoral pact with the Liberals. Convinced he had ‘an election winner if ever there was one’, Fadden persuaded Menzies to promise that he would abolish petrol rationing. At the polls on 10 December the Liberal-Country Party coalition was returned to power, with Fadden as deputy prime minister and treasurer (from 19 December).

    Six months.
    I reckon the libs can ditch another 10 points off their primary vote within 6 months time.

    Think what they could do with another 12 months.

  25. Robbo

    Where on earth does the Liberal Party find these weak as water snowflakes? They endorse a nobody that knows nothing like Julia Banks apparently on the basis that (a) she was available and (b) she said she was a Liberal. Turns out that she is about as Liberal as Malcolm Turnbull and about as loyal. You get what you deserve in politics and in this case the Liberals got a hopeless bed wetter with very few, if any, redeeming features. Maybe, just maybe, the powers that be in the Liberal Party will now do something to fix their bloody awful preselection system. The Party needs decent, honest, strong, dependable and loyal individuals to stand for it at the next election. How many of the current crop that have been endorsed meet that criteria?

  26. John Constantine

    When we have our current one party State, bought and paid for by billionaire property developer Landsharks, the only time critical political media concerns are those as to when it is too soon to purge those not on a tyrants payroll.

    Tyrannical dystopias.

    We are here for a good time, not a long time, so get a council job in purging and censoring right now.

  27. John Constantine

    Australia’s political system has been sold as a package.

    Not just the has beens owned by belt and road, not just the current political orcs unswervingly committed to economic genocide, but the preselection process is owned by the peoples liberation army puppetmasters as well.

    Bought and paid for really means something in today’s Australia.

    The really sad thing is that Banks actually worked in private enterprise (albeit as an in-house lawyer) for almost 20 years before going into politics.
    If they’re able to find virtue-signalling prima donnas like hers outside the political/media/lobbying bubble, how bad must the career apparatchniks be?

  34. jock

    Banks move is quite offensive. As a conservative member of the party i have stood by the “broad church” argument even as the party became so broad it was the size of a couple of football fields. But as howard said if you fracture the liberal conservative vote you will lose. So i stuck at it. Even though i am a sceptic of agm and see the subsidies to renewables and the ret as being ridiculously wastefull for absolutely no effect. As a conservat6i i see social policy involving live and let live. I am not anti gay or trans. And i am not anti woman. We need more women in politics. But i think we need better women politicians than the current crop. Same with the male politicians.

    That said i am sick of the wets/ left bullying and taking over the party. I dont trust photios or his playmates. I dont mind sharing the party with liberal minded more left than conservative types. But i am sick of having it shoved up us. There i have had my rant. But unlike this snowflake julia banks i am not quitting.

  38. Rae

    Barring a mistake where a person is not present for a confidence vote it’s unlikely that Banks becoming an “independent” will matter before an election is called. She, like Kerryn Phelps and others on the cross-benches will not do much, if anything to endanger their tenure and the associated perk for the remainder of this parliament’s term.

    Walking off in a huff, as Banks and others have done, should carry the penalties mentioned above by bemused. viz. resignation followed by a by-election to see if the voters want to elect them as an independent.

  39. Nathan

    If Morrison had ‘cojones más grandes’ he would call a snap election and get to the polls before Christmas. Put Labor on the back foot and force his MPs to get out on the hustings to convince people they should represent them (“all politics is local”).

    I suspect the majority of those whom Cats would like to see in politics are either in business big or small or self employed. Putting your hand up and having your past trawled over in minute detail to find someone anyone who can say you did something 40 yrs ago that might now be frowned upon in these days of wowserism holds no appeal. Therefore, you just get fifth columnists and spivs. Somone suggested a few weeks ago that we sell assets and retire. Good plan, is being actioned now. On tour with ute, boat, guns, traps and square hooks seems like the way to go.

  43. Speedbox

    I agree with the foregoing comments that Banks is a bed-wetting snowflake. But, even a bed-wetting snowflake is capable of rat cunning and I wonder whether her quitting the LNP is a strategic move.

    It is almost certain that the LNP will be smashed at the next election and she holds Chisholm with less than 3% margin. So, rather than being pushed, she has jumped in the hope that she may be able to hold the seat as an independent. Maybe.

    My hypothesis may not be valid but looking through the prism that politicians are profoundly self-serving, it would make sense for her to jump. There is no guarantee that she will be endorsed by the LNP and she may have a chance (albeit tiny) of being elected if she works that electorate and door knocks from now to election day. From her perspective, what has she got to loose? If she stays with the LNP, she will be swept out with the tide and forgotten.

    Banks had already announced that she would not be recontesting her seat some time ago. Being a member of the Liberal Party means attending policy meetings, party meetings and so on. Sitting on the cross benches relieves her of those onerous duties. Now she only has to …. to … well, just collect a paycheck really.

    I will admit that I have briefly pondered the idea of trying to enter politics but the idea that my past will be reviewed in the minutest detail is offensive. I have no large/dangerous/criminal skeletons in my closet but what passed as normal 20-40 years ago is now a stick with which you will be beaten.

    No thanks. Instead, I have taken the view that once Shorten gets in, its ‘game over’ for this country and any hope of a conservative/quasi-conservative government. (I’d even settle for a modified Howard style Liberal Govt but that won’t happen either). The march to the Left is relentless. So, everything I do now is angled towards leaving this sh*thole permanently and the rest of you can make your own arrangements.

    Well I’ve also long said deport the Greeks. Julia Banks never got out of bed for less than $400 a day as a lawyer and yet here she was the once claiming she could live on $40 a day. Of course she couldn’t; she is a precious little princess – one of the spoilt rotten migrant kids who didn’t learn anything about hard work from their parents. Instead she became one of those grasping nouveau-riche peasants. There a dime a dozen in Melbourne – all screaming lefties. A Greek woman – that makes two reasons to boot a from parliament. By the way I would not be surprised if she is ineligible under section 44 full stop the Liberals only said they checked with the Greek Embassy. No one actually provided any documentation. Ttmhe Greek government is is corrupt as they come so you can imagine their diplomats won’t be much better.

    And if things don’t go well as an independent or whatever she will get a job through them perhaps back in lawyering.
    Chasing the dollar, making sure there is a well paid job after the election. She does not strike me as a person with clear cut political goals and aspirations, just speaks in a general way and so on, like from a prepared spiel.

  66. DaveR

    Maybe its a sign of the times, in the UK as well, where conservative voices are not being heard by the political elites of their own party, who are mistakenly convinced electoral success lies in the center.

    If it is, then the 44 who supported Abbott should leave and form a truly conservative party and force Sco-Mo into a new coalition. That way the conservative view will have to be heard in policy formulation in the run-up to the next election.

    And the new conservative party will pick up all the votes of the center-right, leaving Morrison-Frydenberg-Pyne to go head-to-head with Labor.

    Julie Banks had not been a member of the Liberal Party prior to getting chosen to stand for preselection. So it would be interesting to find out who got her to join.
    There was some queries re Greek citizenship when all the hooha was going on . Do not know what the result was.
    I have been wondering what made Liberals vote for Turnbull knowing what they did about him, his personality disorder, work history, work relationships and then there was the dead cat.
    Finally figured it out the LNOs liked his lefty stance ,SSM, Global Warming, etc. I would be interested to see who voted for him and whether this is the split in the Party. Did some change their mind at the last count.
    The left leaning LINOwho have infiltrated the party will destroy it not Malcolm . The talent that will be lost if they do not split and turf out the LINOs

    You’re expecting too much. The LP needs to die because it no longer has any reason to exist. Ideally, it’d be great if some staunch conservative force took over the LP territory, but the fact is we have the political class we have, and they aren’t going anywhere. The best that can be hoped for is a significantly less shit LP than what we see today. It’ll still be pretty shit, however.
