“”Politics today is a clash of interests, not ideas.”

Personally I think the 2 party adversarial political system has a lot to answer for in bringing about this woeful situation. How long ago did Don Chipp see the need for a third political force “to keep the bastards honest”.
Sadly Don’s solution with a major, centrist party did not work. But I am grateful that we have a growing number of sensible, grounded minor parties and true Independents in the Senate who are able to save us from the more extreme ideas of both the Left and the Right.
