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? [My apologies for this off-topic rant.] -- Tristan.
