Lead­ers scrapped like school bul­lies

I turned off the “de­bate” mid­way through. I was ex­pect­ing some in­formed speak­ing from the heads of the two par­ties (I can’t call them “lead­ers”) about the good and bad of both forms of vot­ing.

I got two peo­ple scrap­ping like bul­lies in a school­yard. Both of them were good ex­am­ples of why voter turnout con­tin­ues to drop. They were ir­rel­e­vant to the is­sue.

I won’t be vot­ing for ei­ther of their par­ties, in­clud­ing the Greens, in the next gen­eral elec­tion. Hmmm. Does that mean I won’t vote at all?
