Tainted vote

The anti-constitutional doctrine of “the tainted vote” saw Parliament descend once again into farce yesterday, as opposition leader Tony Abbott and his little lieutenant Christopher Pyne made a dash for the doors to “cancel out” the vote of pariah MP Craig Thomson.

So, not only are the voters of Thomson’s electorate of Dobell to be denied their right to representation in the people’s House, but now Abbott’s and/or Pyne’s constituents as well?

And all because of Abbott’s insistence that the Australian people should have made him Prime Minister at the last election but got it all so horribly wrong.
