A thought about tomorrow

Former federal and state independent MP Ted Mack writing in today's Sydney Morning Herald:
"Party leaders and prime ministers come and go without reference to the voters. There is no mechanism to ensure promises are kept. Your vote is limited to the choice of who might represent your electorate- after the faceless party people and branch stackers have chosen the bulk of the candidates. In truth, our electoral system is an illusion of democracy.."
