With First Past the Post Beremy Scumbum would have been elected even though 54% of the voters didn't want a bar of him; as I remember the Poms were inflicted with Margaret Thatcher on 46%.

Great article on the ABC today about this - read Antony Green.

Quote

The Senate is one of the most powerful parliamentary upper chambers in the world, yet our current voting system allows fractionalised parties with no chance of significant electoral support to enter a lottery for the last seat in each state, writes Antony Green.


It's not just about the Greens, Rodders, but I think you'll like it.

Have to keep the lingo simple to suit the dwindling target audience, many of whom have presumably left my local electorate (green vote down by around 5000 votes since last election). :D
