Australian politics is at a tipping point

I have been articulating my thoughts about the death of the adversarial 2 party political system in Australia for some months now.  What I had not realised until I read Damien Murphy‘s article below is that the two party system was not always the dominant system since 1901.

I think a system based on true coalitions, created on policies put up by candidates and members of their minor or micro parties, will be a major part of the political landscape for the next 5 – 10 years, because neither Labor or the Liberal Party are prepared to really listen to their membership. 

The power brokers of the Left and the Right are fighting tooth and nail today to hold onto the power they currently hold, at the expense of true democracy, at both State and Federal Govt levels.
