BREAKING Premier Marshall humiliated today by losing 3 votes in the House Assembly. Lost control of legislation, 4 Libs cross the floor to vote with Labor & then close the House after being scheduled to sit late. Just appalling after on a few months of Govt. #SAParli
I have been in House of Assembly for over 21yrs & this the most significant “cross” since Norm Foster in June 1982 to support Olympic Dam mining bill. Never before have so many Govt MP crossed in modern SA Political history. #SAParli
Important to note a few interesting facts. All the MP’s that voted with Labor are from the conservative faction of the SA Liberal Party & Minister @stephanknoll abstained on the first crucial vote. The Olsen/Brown divisions return or did they never leave?
The Premiers personal authority within the @LiberalSAHQ his cabinet & the caucus has been delivered a severe blow. There’s no amount of spin that could state otherwise. This was a Government bill the Premier & his Minister wanted debated & his own party said no.
