Australia Senate passes reforms after farcical all-nighter
"Labor senator Doug Cameron began quoting Monty Python during one exchange: "You empty-headed animal food trough wiper I fart in your general direction.""

KWSN reach Australia's Senate and ol' Farty is first through the door! Laughing
Or is this all Michelles doing?

From the BBC's article

Quote:
Until today's reforms, you selected just one party when you voted above the line. Your preferences were then distributed according to your selected party's choice. Depending on how the votes fell, your vote could be allocated to a party you didn't support.


That sounds decidedly dodgy to me.
