"Disenchanted" is not the word! The whole "democratic" set-up is a joke.

Why can't they have compulsory voting with a "None of the above" option? "None of the above" would get my vote every time!written 17th Apr 2005

Come one. This isn't a one party state and majorities can and have been overturned. If not this time, then next time. A seat can only turn from a safe into a marginal if enough people vote against the incumbent.written 17th Apr 2005
