You might recall that on Friday we wrote to the Clerk of the House of Representatives Mr David Elder   about Julie Bishop's continuing use of the post-nominal letters MP.


The very efficient and helpful Mr Elder wrote to advise me of the process for bringing an action against Ms Bishop.

The process would have commenced tomorrow under Standing Order 51 with a notice given to The Speaker and a referral to the privileges committee.

Ms Bishop's decision means that's no longer necessary.  Her timing and the fact it took her so long speak volumes.
