The dramatic installation of Peter Slipper as Speaker capped an extraordinary parliamentary year.


Julia Gillard is in Melbourne. The press office is being tight-lipped about the Prime Minister's schedule today. On Sunday night Ms Gillard will induct Kylie Minogue into the ARIA hall of fame.


Tony Abbott is in Sydney. He spoke to Channel Nine's Today show and 2GB's Alan Jones this morning, and he'll be blogging for the Daily Telegraph later today. Mr Abbott zeroed in on the elevation of Peter Slipper as speaker this morning, saying: "He's not my man, he's the prime minster's man now and she's the one who will have to defend him". Mr Abbott said it was likely not all Labor MPs would be happy with the new speaker. "I think a lot of people in the Labor Party today are saying we have replaced Ha. ry Jenkins with what?"
