On Sunday, Bronwyn Bishop resigned as speaker of the House of Representatives after mounting pressure over her travel expenses.
In response to the resignation the Prime Minister said: “Today, Bronwyn Bishop has done the right thing by the government and the Australian people.
“It’s very important that we have a system which is independent, accountable, transparent and workable. Today I announce that there will be a fundamental review of members of Parliament’s entitlements.
“I want the Australian people to have confidence that their members of Parliament are decent people. It’s become apparent over the last few weeks that the system does need fundamental reform.”

Twitter has responded in a similar way to ‘put out your bats for Phillip Hughes’ or ‘put your wedding dress for Stephanie Scott’:
