Off the rails: A week from hell with grave consequences for the Liberal Party
And then the hammer blow: Banks told Parliament she had quit the Liberal Party and would sit on the crossbench as an independent.

An enormous smile crept across Opposition Leader Bill Shorten's face as he rushed out of the chamber and into an urgent tactics meeting. Down the corridor, senior advisers broke news of the defection to Morrison, who is still fuming about not being told in advance.

Off the back off a disastrous performance in Saturday's Victorian election, the bombshell was the last thing the Coalition needed. Two big blows in just a few short days sparked a fresh round of infighting, stoked fears of more defections, and reinforced a growing view that the government is on course for a devastating defeat in May. The week-long train wreck could prove a pivotal moment in political history books yet to be written.

According to one experienced campaigner: "I think this week, the inevitability of a loss dawned on even the most positive of MPs."
