Vic Liberals lost moral compass

By AAP Newswire

The Liberal Party has forfeited its right to lecture on morals after breaching parliamentary conventions at the last-minute, says the Victorian Leader of the House.

Two Liberal MPs were given a pairing on Good Friday for religious reasons while the government's Country Fire Authority bill was debated. But they defied parliamentary convention to return to the house and vote down the bill.

"The Liberal Party and certainly Matthew Guy have absolutely forfeited their right to lecture anyone, ever again, on issues to do with honesty, integrity or probity," Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan told reporters on Monday.
