Po­lit­i­cal morass

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - OPINION -

LET­TERS from Bill Loudon (FCC 2/1/’19), James Clarey and EM Wilkins (FCC 3/1/’19) high­light the po­lit­i­cal morass en­gulf­ing our na­tion.

Bias and emo­tion out­weigh ra­tio­nal thought when it comes to pol­i­tics.

Locked into what is ba­si­cally a two party sys­tem and bat­tered by a me­dia that is it­self mostly bi­ased, what hope has Democ­racy got?

Some ques­tions the elec­torate really has to ask it­self; do the La­bor, Lib­eral and Na­tional par­ties really rep­re­sent their base and orig­i­nal ideals? In an en­vi­ron­ment where money is God, what hope does an In­de­pen­dent or new po­lit­i­cal party have of get­ting elected?

What ben­e­fit is Ques­tion Time to the elec­torate, are the ques­tions ever an­swered?

Sadly, a gov­ern­ment of the peo­ple, for the peo­ple and by the peo­ple is dy­ing, in fact it’s, in my view, on it’s last gasp. JOHN A NEVE,
