Political games from Labor, the Greens and rouge speaker Sue Hickey have Tasmania's government in a precarious position.
Elected on a promise of stable majority government, the aforementioned are doing everything possible to destabilise the Liberals. They've also been gifted some solid grounds to do so.
Continuous pushes for votes of no confidence in Health Minister Michael Ferguson and Housing Minister Roger Jaensch are not new tactics for opposition parties.
But to have a sitting Liberal member suggest it's time a senior minister in her party's government step aside is new ground.
"He's lost the faith of the doctors, he's lost the faith of the nurses, there's not a lot of faith in the parliament," Ms Hickey told Tasmanians on Wednesday morning.
A significant move.
Labeled time-wasting stunts by Premier Will Hodgman, the government has used it's majority to block the motions and no-confidence debates in fear of Ms Hickey crossing the floor.
While a successful no confidence vote bears no actual significance, Mr Hodgman would surely be obliged to act or address the actions of the parliament.
And the fact the government has blocked several attempts show a complete lack of faith in Ms Hickey's loyalty to the party that endorsed her.
Yes, Tasmania's health system is under pressure. Yes homelessness across the state is a growing problem.
Yes, Labor has put forward several proposals on how to help alleviate some of the stress, but it is still yet to tell the Tasmanian people how it would fund them.
Therefore, Rebecca White and her party are yet to demonstrate their credentials as a credible alternative government.
And the Liberals are yet to prove their solutions are working.
We don't need health as a political football. We need decisive, honest action to correct and improve the health outcomes of Tasmanians. Would a change in minister solve the issues instantly? No. Could he have more support with an assistant minister? Absolutely.
