Almost two years on from the double dissolution election, its effects are still being felt with an endless game of musical chairs
The Senate has turned into a game of musical chairs – the aim is simply to be the last one sitting.
A double-dissolution election, and with it, a lower Senate quota for election, has led to what is politely described as one of the most “interesting” crossbenches in modern political history. Others within the Senate are a little more blunt. “It’s batshit crazy, and just when you think its settled, it gets even more batshit.”
