Missing the Point
Allan Patience provides an analysis of the behaviour of the majority of our politicians as well as of the debate on the upcoming referendum that would resonate with many Australians.
But he fails to ask the question: Why is this so?
We pride ourselves on having a well-functioning liberal representative democracy, so either this is not true, or then a liberal representative democracy in not all it is hyped up to be.
The politicians we get are a reflection of the political system and that applies to the Teals as well, so how would Mr. Patience like to change our political system?
