  • Shouldn't the question before parliament really be whether Shaw has met the terms of the suspension? This is arguable in the extreme, and it's not up to Napthine to be judge, jury and executioner. If the parliament as a whole decides no, then yes, kick him out.

    This whole thing a concocted by the Libs to kick him out without having the risk of a by-election. Weak and predictable.

    • I'm fairly sure there can't be a byelection this close. I think it's more to do with the Libs not wanting him around to highlight their dysfunctionality and incompetence. But from outside Parliament I think he'd be an even bigger detonator.
