    Except it is, collective government responsibility means you don't vote against government items, you would have very quickly seen yourself losing your seat and you know it. I reckon even Petros would have been capable of removing you permanently.

    He couldn't have.
    And you do if you find the government position morally repugnant. You serve the people before the government

    Aph is now a member of the socialists because he is an ideological fit and I'm pretty sure he understands he won't become (acting) "PM" as a socialist member anyway...
    Why shelter a shameless opportunist with ridiculous policies who was practically turned down by every other party?

    Because he's a nice bloke, and all our policies are ridiculous in the socialists.

    Uh huh, keep telling yourself that... But of course, that's why it was possible to get you to not be an SoS, and to have just an insignificant position to placate you.

    I don't like this conversation on what I could have or would have done had Aph stayed on, become an SoS, or voted against Government legislation.

    Could just ask me instead....

    Couldn't he? Last I checked you would have been in a Liberal seat and not your own, and in that case you abstain.

    Ok, would you have never removed Aph from being an MP, based on him apparently holding something over you...

    In fairness, it seems like a distinctly british thing to say.

    I don't think he has anything over me, though would be interested if he could tell me if he does

    On the later, that's for me to know and you to....well, to not know

    So you don't think he has anything over you, but it's for you to know and us to find out, implying that he actually does, or was talking about later preempting Mobbsy's response?

    I feel like I would have enough to make it very difficult for you to have tried to remove me should it have come to that yes.
