Bishop Gone thank heavens, we now might find a real speaker, it is long over due.
Mrs Bishop said in a statement that she had tendered her resignation to the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove.
“I have not taken this decision lightly, however it is because of my love and respect for the institution of the parliament and the Australian people that I have resigned as Speaker,” she said.
“I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Mackellar as their local member, the job that has always been my first responsibility despite other positions I have held within the parliament.
Tony Abbott could not even place blame, instead he blamed the the system, not the person.
