  • @lapuntadelfin No, if Jenkins resigned the House have to elect a new Speaker. #
  • Julia Gillard rises to second Abbott's motion of confidence in the Speaker. #qt #

  • Rob Oakeshott now speaking on the confidence motion in the Speaker. #qt #
  • RT @AndrewLamingMP: Windsor not in the Chamber when Labor needed him most. Just scurries in now. #
  • Confidence motion in Speaker Jenkins passes on the voices without dissent. #qt #
  • RT @stephenjonesALP: All stepping back off the ledge. #
  • On the contrary, he's the only one who is secure…. RT @rhysam: Harry must feel like one of those Ice Truckers as far as job security goes. #
  • @rhysam Can it be thick and brittle at the same time? #
  • RT @sspencer_63: Very quick work by Abbott to prevent Harry's resignation. Slipper just saw his retirement bonus disappear before his eyes. #
  • House Live Minutes show Windsor and Katter did not vote on Baldwin's suspension. Oakeshott voted against. http://auspol.info/aMvLwV #
  • When a Speaker resigns: Jim Cope on February 27th, 1975 http://twaud.io/rTr7 – whilst up in NSW they were appointing Senator Bunton. #
  • @seamus_polsci And Oakeshott against. These independents may yet bring the house of cards down around them. #
  • @latikambourke No, Section 35 makes it clear that the House must elect a new Speaker. #
  • @latikambourke No, just a simple vote of the House. The ALP's nominee would presumably be chosen. But this was potentially chaotic today. #
  • @latikambourke Given that the ALP suckered the Libs last time by nominating Slipper, it could have got very interesting. #
  • Malcolm Farr on some backbenchers: "You would never go to them to seek their opinion, they're just jibberers" #PMAgenda #
  • @sspencer_63 But Slipper doesn't automatically take over. They would have to elect a new Speaker -you reckon the ALP would nominate Slipper? #
  • @seamus_polsci You'd think Abbott would instruct his MPs not to accept the nomination. #
  • @sa9321 That is an entirely unrelated consideration! #
  • @hashytweets If Jenkins went, Abbott faced the risk that Labor & inds make Slipper the Speaker. Libs lose another number on the floor. #
  • @hashytweets Abbott doesn't have to name anyone. It's the govt that has to have a Speaker. They either replace Harry or find a willing Lib. #
  • Baillieu government minister Mary Wooldridge has apologised for missing a division in Parliament. Seems to be quite the day for it. #
  • Some thoughts on Speaker Harry Jenkins and today's fracas in Parliament: http://auspol.info/m6TSMb #auspol #
  • @DamienPatterson She apologised to the House today. I think she missed the vote last week. #
  • @TheFacelessSpin It's not precious at all. Long tradition that Speakers resign if their rulings are not supported by the House. #
  • @TheFacelessSpin He wasn't required to resign but repudiation of his naming of a member is a slap in the face. #
  • You have to be so transparent about everything these days! http://auspol.info/jlVdxX #
  • @DamienPatterson Not in this case. He pointed out an error and I fixed it. I emailed him privately but it's fair enough that I post it also. #
  • @randallgill I suspect he hasn't checked his email yet. Still, it's fair enough to have the comment posted. And you should have told me! #
  • It's fight or flight for Twitter: http://auspol.info/jaKvho – interesting piece on how Twitter's people see its progress. #
  • They're really getting into it for the farewell to Chief Justice Spigelman on http://a-pac.tv #
  • And it has to be said that The Age & SMH iPad apps out today are more than quite good. #
  • I also grabbed the Sunrise app but I'm keeping that quiet… #
  • Rolling Stone's publisher thinks it will take a couple of generations before there's a decisive switch to tablets: http://auspol.info/kVQDz8 #
  • @natecochrane No comments but you can email, tweet and Facebook from within both apps. Top right corner of each page. #
  • @randallgill And the Joke of the Day… #
  • @natecochrane Sending you this through The Age app: http://www.theage.com.au/national/-1fcto.html #
  • @natecochrane My Facebook wall is inactive. Can't stand talking to people I know! #
  • @natecochrane But the email works okay. #
  • @the_kennel It's my favourite channel. No presenters telling me what to think. #
  • @natecochrane Facebook does book on the app – just posted to my wall. #
  • @the_kennel Legal humour appeals to me. And Spigelman is a good man. #
  • @natecochrane I meant Facebook does "work" … #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin At least it was free! #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin The app I mean, not my credibility… #
  • @natecochrane Yep – just tap the screen and the dialogue box disappears. #
  • Google tells me it's International Children's Day. Originated in the former Communist bloc, says Wikipedia: http://auspol.info/iOQTfe #
  • @natecochrane Ah sorry – I did that and it worked okay. #
  • Oakeshott nearly brings down the house: http://auspol.info/jcBjYN #auspol #
