As the dysfunctional Julia Gillard, Bob Brown led minority government stumbles from one catastrophe to the next, one wonders where we should really lay the blame.
Three independents, Rob Oakshot, Tony Windsor and Andrew Wilkie chose to create this dysfunctional government and they could end it by simply withdrawing their support anytime they choose to.
The idealistic, unrealistic Greens Party received only 13 per cent of the vote at the 2010 Federal Election, but have control of the senate, and have far too much influence over the lives of all Australians after being supported by such a paltry percent of the Australian population.
A recent poll showed 83 percent of the 3676 respondents wanted a Federal Election on the carbon tax issue. The leading question is will these independents continue to allow this dysfunctional government to continue to make decisions against the will of the Australian people?
Yours sincerely, Graeme Barwick
