Hi all, John Barilaro (aka Barry Boy) has resigned as Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional NSW, Industry and Trade, and from Parliament. This is the 3rd MP to resign, meaning that until at least the by elections happen. We now have a minority governemnt. Meaning that the Collation need another party to be able to pass ANYTHING!

I think you are misunderstanding the process here, and in your comments earlier about Deputy Premier.
Firstly, the Deputy Premier in the coalition is the leader of the Nats. It will not be Ayers, Stokes, Kean or anyone else from the Libs. It will be whoever replaces Barilaro.
Ayers/Stokes whoever, will be the deputy leader of the Liberal party. Currently that is Perrotett, and he is not the deputy Premier.
On this minority government comment, we are already in a minority government (albeit a safe one given Sidotti and Ward will vote whatever libs vote). The three MPS have not yet resigned and there is no parliamentary sitting right now that they need to vote at. All of these resignations will be looked at very carefully to ensure that the timing does not impact the government's capability to function. I dont know how it will work with parliament sitting in November but im sure there are conventions.
