The morning after polling day in Western Australia

So here we sit with an undetermined result – neither major party has sufficient seats to form government in its own right. Minor parties and independents will have a major say in how WA’s next government is formed. This is parliamentary democracy at work. In the end a small portion of the electorate will ultimately determine how political power will be wielded over the next four years.  The test of the effectiveness of democracy has always been how the majority treats the minority. It will be interesting to see if the reverse is true. The next few days should be most informative.

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.
