Well suspending parliament was an interesting move.
Desperation I suspect. Afraid of losing another MP to the citizenship debacle and be forced to endure a no confidence vote which he would likely fail. Off to the Governor General if he fails.
According to Andrew Bolt, at least one Liberal MP is going to quit if Turnbull isn’t replaced and not with Julie Bishop. I can’t help but think it’s a bit of wishful thinking on Bolt’s part, so take that with as much salt as you can stand.
