So Victorian Labor minister Adem Somyurek has been sacked from Daniel Andrews' cabinet, following a Nine exposé revealing apparent systematic branch-stacking and an array of abusive remarks about colleagues and Labor figures.

Somyurek declared he was only quitting for "inappropriate language" -- language that included calling a female colleague a "stupid moll" and "psycho bitch" whose head he was going to "fucking knock off", and referring to Young Labor members as "slimy little fuckers, little passive-aggressive fucking gay kids".

Andrews made it clear Somyurek was sacked, described his comments as "unacceptable", referred him to Victoria's anti-corruption commission and police and is pushing for his expulsion from the ALP.
