Perhaps that flag should be at half mast? What will become of the Liberal Party?

The ramifications of a deteriorating Liberal Party has shown its ugly face, with a late night coup delivering the Northern Territory.

In what the Northern Territory News is calling “leadership turmoil”, the current Chief Minister, appointed to the position in 2013.

Adam Giles, who has been credited with making the Centre-right relevant to the Aboriginal demographic in the territory, rolled former Chief Minister Terry Mills whilst Mills was out of the country on business.

In a interesting turn, Mills expressed publicly with “delight” with the news his successor, Giles, had been rolled.

Meanwhile in Queensland, voters are yet to know who their next Premier will be. Labor is expected to govern with the Katter’s Australia Party and/or one or two independents.
