sad state of affairs...

Well this unionist is pretty pissed off. The last election saw the ALP re-elected after years of conservative rule and their attempt to destroy the trade union movement.

This time around the only thing I am interested in is seeing how well the Greens do and a secondlys hoping Tony Abbott doesn't become Prime Minister.

I tire of the ACTU being so blatantly pro-ALP despite the fact that there are other parties, including a 'major' minor party in the Greens, offering better policies for workers. Instead of educating workers on how the preferential voting system works (ie a vote for the Greens or socialists etc is not a wasted vote) they basically paint it as ALP v Libs.

Anyway, here's a good video explaining how preferential voting works for the House of Representatives.
