Off the Cross Bench

Posted on by in Letters


I moved to the Cross Bench as a National MP in August 2018, due to leadership instability.  At the time I said I would review the decision after the next election.

After discussions with the leadership team I have informed them I am returning to the Government Benches.

There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the rule changes initiated by the Liberal Party late last year. It means we will never again see the instability we saw in the last two Parliaments.

Secondly, the Australian public has been able to be heard. It has seen a comfortable return of a Coalition Government.

I congratulate Scott Morrison on his leadership since becoming Prime Minister, and my leader Michael McCormack who has done a great job. I look forward to being part of a Government focussed on Job Growth, Infrastructure Spending, bringing down the cost of living and preserving our environment.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
