Julie Bishop has announced that she will not re-contest Curtin at the next election.

Now; who's going to run the betting on which directorships/overseas posting/or whatever that she has lined up?

More to the point, who's going to run the betting that the LNP are sure things come the election?

One of the best of the LNP, have a lot of respect for her. Will it have a sizeable impact on our diplomacy and the power plays of the Coalition?

Not so sure.

She is on the nose internally having stabbed TA in the back and anyone supporting MT's rise to PM is also not popular.

She has gone as far as she will go, not old, but not young either and the likel yhood of the LNP actually winning is low so credibility where its due, she's not going to do the usual dummy spit if they loose and resign immediately post election. If she wants to do more career wise, the time is right for her to go and move on and she will get more respect this way.

Highly likely she has spent the last few months sorting out her next step and sure enough as others have said we will see that happen I'm sure in near future. The EU's seems to like her and she has done alot of presentations and meetings on border control at their expense.

What odds can I get her next job will be working for a security company and based on Kangaroo Island?

Julie Bishop wasa highly regarded Foreign Minister but failed to perform well during her fairly brief tenure as Shadow Treasurer.

She is well enough regarded by both parties that could see her appointed to a diplomatic or bureaucratic overseas post by either LNP or ALP.
There will no doubt be some comfortable Board offers to supplenment her super. Interesting to note her resignation speech was carefully worded not to offend Scomo & Co.

Didn't like her overmuch after I saw her do the "death stare" with garden gnomes on TV.

Nonetheless, she has been a diligent Foreign Minister and done her job well, gotta say that.Argy bargy with leaders of other nations and all that. Got the job done, hafta say that even though I didn't like her overmuch.

LNP have lost a sharp operator.

Australian political history is littered with Honorable Members who have been handed portfolios or shadows thereof, and not performed. In some ways, Shadow Treasurer was the traditional job of the Deputy Leader when in Opposition. It happened not to suit Bishop, and Foreign Affairs subsequently did. It's a slight blemish on her CV, but I would think it's not a big issue.

J Bish was very cordial and polite in her final words to parliament, gracious even.
Then walked out and supposedly jumped on the plane home. Big message there.

Mentioned above about the garden gnome. Must tip my hat for someone who out stare a lump of painted concrete. And not too precious to have a laugh at her own expense. A rather brutal sense of humour.

Personally, I wish well.

I know she's an evil lawyer who defended James Hardy but she also represented about three-quarters of the brain power on the Liberal front bench. With her gone they're dumber than ever...

A statement that shows you have no idea of how legal representation works.
The lawyer is not hired because he/she believes in the client's cause.
The lawyer is hired to present the clients case in court, and to advise the client on matters of law - no more and no less.

Point of Order, Chairperson!!!! Perhaps, 'Don Dunston', your above statement (quote; evil lawyer who defended James Hardy) is referring to James Hardy regarding a certain asbestos court case? Please use Google as that will tell you it was not James Hardy with the Julie Bishop asbestos court case, but it fact it was CSR.

Indeed, if all lawyers ceased defending clients who were thought to be "evil" the legal system would fall apart in an instant.

The recently completed trial of James Gargasoulas being a case in point. How on earth could someone like that hope to obtain legal representation if lawyers were to be branded as evil for simply defending someone in court.

Evil lawyers? there is always the self representation option, where council has a fool for a client. Laughing

It would become completely unnecessary.

Forget judges and fair trials and examining evidence and all that rubbish, just get a couple of lawyers to give a Colosseum-style thumbs up or thumbs down.

Or the unilateral revocation of Australian citizenship from Neil Prakash.

I don't care a bit about Prakash and I'd be fine with him continuing to rot in a Turkish prison, but I'm glad the decision has been challenged to avoid setting a dangerous precedent about the nature of Australian citizenship. I'm not okay with giving Peter Dutton the power to unilaterally withdraw the citizenship of anyone he doesn't like, and I'd really like to see future legislation make citizenship revocation a decision to be ruled on by a judge rather than made by a politician.

Yeah that's right everything I think is wrong because you sez, that's why.

My God, what on earth did you do on your recently holiday? Probably fantasised about me the entire time... "I wonder what don_dunstan is doing? I wonder where he is? I wonder if he's thinking about me?"

They're ALL evil, it's just a matter of degree.

Anyway my point was that she was someone on the Liberal front-bench who at least had a modicum of intelligence about her and now she's going. Very disappointing... who's left, Christopher Pyne? Mathias Corman? The remaining front bench barely have four neurons to fire between them...

Now you are being stupid.
It's probably not your fault that you don't understand the legal representation system, but there's no need to make a complete fool of yourself.
How many other posters disagreed with me? How many agreed? Have a look.
