Bishop can't precipitate a spill.

    The  press scrum seems incompetent. Ben Fordhan of 2GB rang around during the day and discovered that in a leadership spill, all ministers and secretaries are duty bound to support the PM.

    The obvious conclusion to be drawn from that is that if Julie wanted to challenge she could, under no circumstances support the spill, unless she resigned her ministry. If the spill were successful, I assume, the ministry would be declared void so they can vote as they choose.
