Compulsory voting

Have your say

We seldom get as much political excitement as there is just now.

Will we ever return to the famed “silly season” summers when nothing important seemed to happen?

One thing I did learn was apparently just 24 percent of the total electorate voted for our Tory government.

Until we do something radical about that our governments will not be representative of the whole country.

The Aussies, who are more bolshie than us, have compulsory voting.

It seems to work for them and they get 90 per cent turn-outs at general elections.
