Ronald Dillon was suspended from his job at the New York City Health Department after a judge found that he spoke in a “deliberately robotic fashion” during at least 5 inbound phone calls last year.
• After a day of debate in the Victorian Lower House of Parliament, rogue Frankston MP, Geoff Shaw has been suspended.
• Under the suspension, Geoff will be deprived of 11 days’ pay, banned from taxpayer-funded travel and will be forced to apologise for the misuse of his taxpayer-funded car.
• It has been argued that the punishment is soft, with Labor having lost its bid to have Geoff expelled.
• Geoff has been the ‘balance of power MP’, with concerns that the Lower House will now be deadlocked, leading to an inability to pass proposed laws.
