    At the end of the day I believe that who I thought was a strong woman like Julia Banks would have earned the respect of her public supporters to have remained with the Liberals but instead all she has achieved is destabilising the Morrison government.

    I get the feeling Julie Bishop too is about to reveal some sort of about face tactic to interrupt Federal politics!

    It is not a good time in politics for women as they cannot be relied on through the thick and thin of political life, the tough ones will make it and good luck to them.to deserve their place within the system.

    Kerryn Phelps is new to politics and she would need to make considerable inroads and achieve beyond expectations before the next election, taking Banks and also Bishop under her spell may create “feel good” feeling in the short term but be devastating for the up coming Federal Election which will more than likely create yet another Prime Minister on an uncertain path with yet another classic Climate Change versus the Economy challenge playing the main role of the never ending dramas of the clearing the decks within Australian politics.

    The worst of democratic politics in modern Australia awaits us as the various personalities further destroy our Federal government and it wont be PM Morrison to blame!

      Obviously these women have more integrity, intelligence and sense of responsibility than your patriarchal lapdogs, Robin.

      The latest sock-puppet, Morrison, is as good as dead in the water.

      In record time, I might add.

      What a loser.

    It looks like a gutsy female House of Reps crossbench, but it will take a galactical orbital shift to pull the old boys’ conservative coterie into line.

    The next federal election may see more of these women holding the dead-wood male Neanderthals to account!
