With the Australian Federal Election looming on Saturday, I had a thought. Unlike Mark Latham, I don’t believe in having the right to vote and wasting it by leaving the form blank. That’s a bit like blocking your chimney at Christmas time, so dear old Santa can’t get in. If you have an opportunity why blow it ?
How would it be if the ultimate make up of Federal Parliament was an amalgam of politicians from various persuasions based on the national vote. No more parties as such, just a Parliament of individuals with majority rule being the basis of decision making. That way, the brightest and most creative hard workers would pool their expertise as one, without a formal Opposition. The real Opposition would be us, “to keep the bastards honest”….RIP Don Chipp.
