Australia has currently got a hung parliament and both sides of politics are now vying for the independents to come aboard so they can form a minority government. The nobodies are somebodies and the somebodies are in nowhere land. It seems that 6 weeks of campaigning and millions of taxpayer’s dollars resulted in a hung parliament. Can we do this any better next time?
Well, I have the answer…
Enter Big Brother
For the next election campaign, throw all the politicians into the Big Brother House in Dreamworld. Mix them all up, give them lots of booze, maybe some weapons (OK, mavbe not weapons), turn on the cameras and let’s watch the next 6 weeks of one Huge Political Mass Debate. We would certainly get a lot more bang for our buck. And what they lack in personality, would most likely be made up for with entertaining debates that we can all sleep soundly through.
And forget about inviting Mr Speaker. The pollies show no respect and speak all over the poor guy all the time anyway!
Then we would really know what Julia Gillard said to Kevin Rudd and if Tony Abbot really has a budget planned. You know, the one that can’t be looked at before he’s running the country. Yeah right! I think Mark Latham had a point, albeit the point was in the shape of a Pineapple. Big Brother would sort out the men from the boys (and the women from the girls).
Do Politicians Mass Debate?
Don’t go there Sean! Surely Politicians are the ultimate Mass Debators, aren’t they? They play with (words) all the time. Therefore, so can I.
OK. I’m playing with the English language here, but I have always maintained there are more than a few w**kers in parliament. I would get more sense from a Parliament Of Owls. Rather than spending money on negative trash campaigns about how bad the “other guys” will be if they get in, let’s make some money from the shiny bottoms and chuck them under 24 hour scrutiny and watch them on TV on Big Brother. After all, aren’t they part of the Big Brother Structure?
Let the people vote with SMS and evict one politician every day until only one is standing. It may not be a fair system, but hey… who said politics had to be fair?
What do you think? Should we have one big Political Mass Debate in the Big Brother House?
Just a thought…
