Dutton to be replaced as Immigration Minister after losing bid to become PM ?

mmigration Minister Peter Dutton this morning lost an attempt to challenge Turnbull to be Australia’s PM.

Interesting to see what happens now. Normal protocol is that Dutton would leave cabinet and sit on the backbench until the next election.

That may mean we have a new Immigration Minister shortly. And quite possibly return to a balanced sensible immigration program and nearer to the governments target of the economically prime number of 190,000 instead of the politically driven 165,000 per annum.
