Bronwyn Bishop absolutely LOVED being the Speaker. But you just can't catch a helicopter 80km on the taxpayer's dime and get away with it.
And so this morning she had to schlep all the way to the Liberal partyroom, just so she could officially quit. Then she had to watch as another guy took her place.
That guy was Tony Smith, and he was pretty pleased with himself. (He should be, he just got a $146,000 pay rise.)
And while Smith was speaking to the media, Bishop got a kiss on the cheek from Tony Abbott. She didn't look too pleased with the whole thing.
"It should be said of the member for Mackellar despite some admitted errors of judgment, she has served this parliament, our country, her party with dedication and distinction for over 30 years," Mr Abbott said in parliament following the vote.
The PM once described himself as the political love child of Ms Bishop and former Prime Minister John Howard.
Then parliament did this silly thing where the new Speaker pretends he doesn't want the job, so his colleagues drag him to the chair. He does want it though. That's why he nominated for it.
Then Bishop had to take her new seat on the backbench. She made this face.
Everyone clapped for the new Speaker, except for the old one, who reportedly kept her hands together.
Tony Abbott welcomed the new Speaker.
Manager of opposition business Tony Burke looked quite pleased. He and Bronwyn didn't really get on.
Tony Smith took his new seat.
And Bronwyn took hers. It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
