Senator Tammy Tyrrell has shocked many by resigning from the Jacqui Lambie Network to sit as an independent.

“This is not something I’ve taken lightly,” Tyrrell said.


”It’s become clear to me that I no longer have the confidence of the Jacqui Lambie Network to be able to represent it in the Senate.”

While Jacqui has not kicked me out of the Network, she has suggested that I go it alone.”

After working for Senator Lambie for seven years, Tyrrell said she wanted both the network and herself to succeed.

“I am not doing this because I want to harm Jacqui or the Network. I want to see Jacqui and the JLN continue to succeed.”

”As it is now clear that the Network does not have confidence in my ability to contribute to that success, I do not wish to do anything in my advocacy for Tasmania that might harm it.”

The move by Tyrrell has left many wondering about the future of the Jacqui Lambie Network and her own political career.


The Lambie Network picked up at least two seats at the recent Tasmanian state election.
