Robert James Murray "Rob" Oakeshott (born 14 December 1969) is an Australian politician. He is the independent Member of the House of Representatives for the Division of Lyne in New South Wales, which he won in the 2008 by-election following the resignation of former Nationals leader and Howard minister Mark Vaile. Elected as the Nationals candidate for the state seat of Port Macquarie in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly in 1996, he left the party to become an independent in 2002, and retained the seat until 2008, when he resigned to run as an independent candidate in the Lyne by-election. Oakeshott describes his views as economically conservative and socially progressive.

Time again for some more political satire folks, here is The Rob Oakeshott Song. All Copyright © 2010 & 2011 Macquarie Network, Ray Hadley & The Robertson Bros.⺠Brown Town Song : - Julia Gillard Little Lies Song : - It appears old Oakey as the dude likes to be known has finally snapped back @ The Macquarie Network's Ray Hadley for telling it how it is for Rob & expressing the true feelings of his electorate of Lyne. Oakey feels Hadley & media outlets of a similar vain have somehow poisoned his people's minds against him in that seat. Seems the fellow feels all must bend to his progressive ALP/Greens thinking ? One thing is for sure those that elected Rob will not take kindly to his assumptions that a so called radio shock jock & like minded print & other media are so easily able to brainwash them into their way of thinking. Big Don has no idea what Rob Oakeshott is on, but I sure don't want to take any of his little idiot pills that might be lying around his office & alike, rather keep my mind clear & thinking, like the likes of Hadley & The Sunday Telegraph along with the good people of Lyne. If Oakey does not get treatment for his condition he will be largely responsible for tossing this once great country into the bin where it can not be recycled.
