  • @smurray38 He did stomp the country, he did win, he did do the joint sitting and his opponents didn't stop blocking. There's the lesson… in reply to smurray38 #
  • @RealJohnRocket Now there's a thought…! I think we can rely on Sen Xenophon to do the right thing… in reply to RealJohnRocket #
  • @RealJohnRocket He can block 38-38 with just Fielding but then he loses control of the bills. To repeat 1975 he needs 39 to pass a deferral. in reply to RealJohnRocket #
  • The world's 10 best bookshops: http://bit.ly/zIf7g – and I've only been to one of them… #
  • @RealJohnRocket 1975 depended on the Supply bills remaining in the Senate to be passed when Fraser was made PM. The Libs deferred them… in reply to RealJohnRocket #
  • @RealJohnRocket …but a deferral requires a motion to defer which requires 39 votes (39-37) so LNP 37 + Fielding and Xenophon. in reply to RealJohnRocket #
  • @RealJohnRocket That's assuming the Greens vote with the ALP!!! in reply to RealJohnRocket #
  • @RealJohnRocket If Fraser had rejected Supply in 1975 he would not have been able to undertake to Kerr that he could get Supply through… in reply to RealJohnRocket #
