But Mr Vaile, who was also once Mr Oakeshott's boss, conceded the number of seats both parties ...

For the Nationals the by-election for Lyne will be a significant test. Perhaps better put; significant tests. It will test their capacity to generate a supporter base, their ability to continue to attract voters if a good Liberal candidate is put forward, meeting the cost of the by-election campaign and their continued relevance in a change federal political landscape.
Like rats or saints?
Well it took Downer long enough to officially declare his resignation in writing. But the real 'Flipper' came from Vaile's resignation announcement, this is an announcement only people so let's not get too excited yet, and no doubt will follow Downer's lead in goading the ALP about fielding a candidate. Downer was at it again today saying Labor was cowardly for not standing a candidate, while Labor wimped on about Mayo being un-winnable.
