Which senators understand senate elections?
Mar 31st, 2017 at 2:21pm
 
http://www.ozpolitic.com/electoral-reform/broken-promises-stolen-senate-seats.ht...

I sent the following message to the 12 sitting QLD Senators this afternoon.

Quote:
If a double dissolution election were to be held while you are a Senator, which vote counting method would you support for deciding who gets the 3 and 6 year terms?


I got a response from one Senator's office in 65 minutes:

Malcom Roberts, One Nation: The method preferred by the Senator would be the one which best reflects the outcome that would have been obtained if two half senate elections were called one after the other. Which is probably the method that was used this last election.

Note that the 'order elected' method was one used in the last election. The response is probably referring to the recount method.

I am still waiting on a response from the following Senators:

George Brandis, Liberal
Matthew Canavan, Nationals
Anthony Chisholm, ALP
Pauline Hanson, One Nation
Chris Ketter, ALP
Ian Macdonald, Liberal
James McGrath, Liberal
Claire Moore, ALP
Barry O'Sullivan, Nationals
Larissa Waters, Greens
Murray Watt, ALP

The practical ambiguity is of far more concern than Effendi's allegation about ignorance.  This uncertainty needs to be resolved with definition......perhaps by convention.

You're not half bad are you Effendi.  Your 18C windmill tilting has been seen off by a thrashing, so now you revert back to this one, which is fair enough I suppose but you are so mundane in the causes you take up.......those that Floater Voter could not care less about.

.. and the rest don't?  From what I hear from a couple of Independents, they are right on the money, with a few little fripperies on the side.

Like most politicians, they simply need good guidance....

Unlike God - FD can't be all things to all people and everywhere at the one time...

Funny thing - I wrote a short story recently where God was all things to all etc, but preferred to exercise free will in ensuring that SHE did not know everything, which is how Luke (Lucifer) caught her out, the sneaky rat...... a bit tricky for some..  didn't know God carried a hand-bag, did you?  Or that they still use typewriters in Heaven.... or that She'd always been married to the Archangel Gabriel who she had only just met today many thousands of years after The Downfall which was just then taking place...  I know .. I know - this Heavenly Time thing is sooo confusing....

You can find a list of your senators here. Click on your state. The senators will be on the first page of results.

http://www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members

It also provides an email address or online contact form.

Ask them this question:

If a double dissolution election were to be held while you are a Senator, which vote counting method would you support for deciding who gets the 3 and 6 year terms?

Sign off with your name and address as you are more likely to get a response if you are from their state. Post the responses here.
