Another LNP-lite mob voting against the interests of all Australians.
Bye-bye Sharkie, Georgina Downer is a lock for Mayo at the next election.

Vote for this:

The Federal Government has struck a deal with South Australian minor party Centre Alliance to back its contentious changes to university course funding, a day after they were urged not to back the legislation by Senate crossbenchers.

F'n grubs.

The Liberal Party may pull the trigger on a bid to snap up Centre Alliance duo Rebekha Sharkie and Stirling Griff within weeks.

An offer could be made for the pair to join the Liberal Party in a fortnight’s time when politicians return to Canberra for a sitting week, sources told The Advertiser.

It is expected they will be wooed in talks with senior party figures, with a future ministry floated as an enticement for Ms Sharkie if she rises through the ranks down the line.

None of this is particularly surprising. Centre Alliance and its small-l liberal predecessors have always been much more closely aligned with the Liberal Party than the ALP - many of their candidates and staffers over the years have been ex-Liberals. If the party is going down the tubes it's natural that most of them would return to their previous home.

Their support of the government's tertiary education package is also not particularly unexpected. They are a South Australian party, and South Australia’s university sector is mostly vocationally-focused. They will be big winners from the proposed changes, whilst the big east coast research universities will be the losers.
