Who’s on second?

With mere months until the NT election in August, there's a fun question being debated in the territory's legislative chambers: who the hell is the opposition? 

Normally that’s a pretty easy question to answer: the party with the most seats is the government, the party with the second-most seats is the opposition, and everyone else is the crossbench -- the crazy diamonds that make our parliamentary system shine on. 

The problem in the Northern Territory is that there’s currently a tie for second place thanks to the wandering allegiances of Jeff Collins, member for Fong Lim.
