For those of you who have been wondering, Australia still hasn’t a government, Prime Minister, leader, nothing. Yes people, it has been 17 days since the country voted and everything is still in limbo. Ironically the decision comes down to 3 Independents who are basically blackmailing the two major parties, Labor and the Coalition, into changing policies and redirecting funding to get their vote. I say go back to polls and let the people vote all these friggin imbeciles out.
In reality the Coalition won the election by a significant majority but thanks to the two party preferred voting system we now have this ridiculous situation. In other words, it really isn’t the people who decide the government but the politicians who woo the minority parties behind the scenes. If they make it compulsory for everyone to vote they should make it compulsory for the party who received the most votes to be elected and not this bullshit system of minority parties handing over their votes to their preferred leader.
Oh and while I am bitching about stupid friggin politics can someone tell me why not one political party, including the friggin Greens, failed to mention the water crisis in their campaign? This is the most important issue Australia will face this century. Without a solution we are doomed.
