"It looks like the average Australian citizens, voters, believe that federal elections is a kinda Melbourne- Cup race were one can bet on recomendation from the polls prior to the elections. It is a scary view and no matter who is winning the race, nothing gonna change. The only change is Who is going to reside in the Kirribilli House. - Ture Sjolander
