A Scoop alert has just arrived bearing shocking news. Greens co-leader Rod Donald died last night of a heart attack. At 48! I'm completely pole-axed. And what a way for Nandor to re-enter the House...
It's been a while since an MP has died in the line of duty. Was Norman Kirk the last one until now? His heart gave out too.
So long Rod Donald.
UPDATE: DPF has cleared up the query on MP deaths. It still makes Rod the first party leader to die on the job in nearly thirty years.
