Lost the confidence of the House...Who, Us??
It is a nice question as to what happens when a government fails to defeat a motion calling for it to resign.
At that point it is pretty clear that government has lost the confidence of the House. Any government which respected the traditions of Parliament would, of course, resign. The Liberals, having shown their contempt for Parliament will hang on.
Ms. Clarkson really will have a dilemma...even a tougher call than coming back from Europe for Louise Hole's funeral...
