Speaker Bronwyn Bishop sacked
Following multiple suspected rorts of travel expense involving helicopter, the speaker in Australian house of representatives has; after significant bipartisan pressure; resigned. Having become a divisive character due to her propensity to eject opposition questions on the flippant grounds of house standing orders 94a, its a surprise that she was finally undone by her travel expenses rather than outrageous bias in subverting democracy and deflecting criticism of the government. Philip Ruddock is touted to be her replacement, and many wonder why he was not the speaker from the beginning of this government.
