For Like minded people who like to see-
Was looking for another acticle when I can across this little piece in a rural paper called
The Land. Perhaps mr Oakshot should look back and see how far of track he has drifted.
Peter Cameron, a Presbyterian, was the principal of St Andrews College at Sydney University when Mr Oakeshott studied political science.
When Dr Cameron was tried in 1994 for supporting the ordination of women, Mr Oakeshott saw a man prepared to stand and fall for his principles.
The experience marked him keenly and underlines his prepartion for trial at the hands of both political parties, his own electorate of Lyne and the wider community. Mr Oakeshott will wear the label of heretic with pride if it means standing firm to his beliefs.
Mr Oakeshott has played the part before, walking out on the National Party in 2002 as a sitting NSW MP to win his seat as an independent, then claiming the federal seat based on Port Maquarie at a byelection when the former National Party leader Mark Vaile resigned in 2008. He held it on Saturday comfortably, but not without a substantial swing back to the National Party.

Well how about this one from the ABC. He seems to want to come back, but not too sure. What a guy.
personally, I believe his electorate deserves strong opposition to the carbon tax. If he now wishes to provide that, then potential opposition candidates would take that on board.
Might be getting a little hot in the kitchen for Robbie boy. Looking for an out to save his backside perhaps.
Well if he walks across the floor we'll take it. Then deal with him later.
