And the slips keep getting bigger

Wilson Tuckey boycotting Parliament, Peter Costello busy with his laptop during Question Time, Downer off dining while the House is sitting, and now Mark Vaile moonlighting as a lobbyist and unavailable to his northern NSW electorate.
The arrogant contempt being flaunted by former Howard Government ministers and MPs has stripped Brendan Nelson of what little authority he had as Leader of the Opposition.
With the only response to this lack of enthusiasm for the job at hand being a call to these MPs to consider defaulting on their electoral commitment by resigning within months of the federal election, the entire Coalition has totally lost what little credibility it had left.
Any more public relations nightmares like these and Nelson may find his dismal 7% approval rating slipping even further.
