THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES?

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES?

As an evolving chimpanzee who is interested in the institutions of human government, I am intrigued by the Australian Federal Parliament’s ‘House of Representatives‘.

I understand that over forty percent of the population who chose to voice their opinion in the recent plebiscite did not want the definition of Marriage changed.

In a House of 150 members who ‘represent‘ the electorates of Australia, isn’t 40% of the ‘representatives’ 60 members?

On 7th December, only Four members represented those 40%.

Four solitary men!

Four courageous men who braved one of the fiercest foes – political correctness!

Four – not sixty!

Less than 5% of the members!

Perhaps it is the ‘House of Misrepresentatives’!

Gibber! Gibber!
