The truth is never “cods wallop” and allowing the people their democratic voice is not “sour grape”. Maybe only to fanatics who cannot see past their own blind agendas.
If the people in these Independents electorates wanted an ALP Government, they also could have voted for the ALP candidates in their electorate, but they didn’t - so there goes your theory out the window!
Yes. The people voted for Independent candidates, not major political parties, because the people in those electorate wanted to be represented in Parliament by candidates Independent of any major political party. But “bum fingers Oakeshott” and “no nuts Winsor” didn’t stay Independent for too long, did they? What these cretins did, was sold their electorates votes to the troll queen for bribes (a hand-full of beans).
If both these sleazy Independents were “true” Independents, they would have given their constituents their democratic rights, and called for another election regardless of bribes from either major party.
Remember how “bum fingers” was so enthralled with the media attention and spotlight that it took him thirty minutes to say something that it would take a normal person to say in thirty seconds.
You want to believe all the lies and con job, then that your prerogative.
