I am mixed as to whether this is good or bad.
It is good because it means that people are making a stand over something that is evidently erroneous (all this global warming trash), however, I see this as a bad step because what if all of the "good guys" stand down and leave politics?
That only leaves us with the bad.

"I indicated to Malcolm at the end of the conversation that given his position I could no longer support the opposition's policy and therefore could no longer be in the shadow cabinet"
Good on him, never thought i would see this to be honest.
Julia Gillard is a hardcore left winger...formly a member of the Australiam Communist party in her younger years.....will bring a totaly different slant on australian politics.....

I disagree and fail to see how resigning is classed as making a stand. When their positions can be filled with yes men. Shouldn't they stay in their positions and use their positions to fight for what they believe in? instead of just stepping down when the going gets tough. How can this be seen as putting up a fight for whats right?
Looks like just more of same politicians doing more of the same, avoiding any issue which is real instead of GROWING A SPINE.

Looks like some people are waking up to the crud being spewed by the anti-global warming crowd.
