I know this part of the post is best ignored, but pardon me. Thankyou for
informing me that I lived in a country where democracy has either failed
or didn't exist in the first place; I shall pass this knowledge on to my
fellow Australians. But they will be curious: what should I say of our
Parliament, with its proportionally and preferentially elected
representatives, who, for instance, give up their seat if they aren't
re-elected? Shall I pass this knowledge on to New Zealanders, too?
