Well, if that were actually true Doc, Molan (137,000 votes) would have romped home over the candidate who WAS elected (25,097).

I dont think our our democracy is broken, but it could definitely use some tweaking. The major parties, who receive the vast majority of the vote, are too often held to ransom by minor parties who are only too happy to exercise power far beyond the actual electoral support they receive.

The majority of voters want the ‘sensible centre’, but the centre is undermined at every turn by the having to deal with extreme right and left groups and individuals , along with the odd nutter like Lambie.
