Dear Ms. B. Bishop,
I have been watching the new parliament. I feel the need to point out that the persons to your left were elected by Australian voters to speak for their respective constituents. Your obvious bias towards the persons to your right is a shameful affront to the dignity of the Australian parliamentary process.
Sitting there in smirking compliance to the LNP, is conduct utterly inappropriate for a speaker, you seem to not understand that you are no longer a toadying backbencher. When you assumed the privileged seat of speaker it became your duty to fairly and impartially represent all Australians.
When you dismiss and silence the voices to your left, you are dismissing and silencing the millions of Australians they have been elected to represent.
For the sake of Australian democracy I ask that you resign immediately as speaker. Your conduct is an utter disgrace to Australia and the parliament. Every moment you sit in that chair, you preside over the destruction of the once proud democratic process of my country.
An Australian Voter.
