Timeline of Luke Simpkins
At the 2016 election, Simpkins suffered a 5.20% swing against him and was defeated by Labor candidate Anne Aly. During the election campaign, Liberal Justice Minister Michael Keenan was accused of starting a smear campaign against Aly. Simpkins joined in the campaign targeting Aly for her previous work in counter-terrorism, despite having written to her, in 2015 before she was a Labor candidate, to convey his admiration for her work including the “content of your media interviews and approach to the threat of radicalisation”.
On 6 February 2015 Simpkins announced that he would move a motion, at a meeting of the party room, for a spill of the federal Liberal Party’s leadership positions (the motion was seconded by fellow WA Liberal Don Randall). Simpkins stated that such a motion would give Liberal members of parliament and senators the opportunity to either endorse the Prime Minister, Tony Abbott or “seek a new direction.” The meeting was held on 9 February 2015 and the spill motion was defeated 61 votes to 39.
He has attacked halal food, declaring in 2011 that “by having Australians unwittingly eating Halal food, then we are all one step down the path of conversion, and that is a step we should only make with full knowledge and not be imposed upon us unknowingly.” His position was criticised by Labor MP Chris Bowen.
Edwards retired at the 2007 election, and Simpkins won the seat against new Labor candidate Liz Prime with a 2.5% swing, one of only four pro-Coalition swings in Australia and one of only two new House seats won by the Liberal Party.
