I realize that Oz is no longer a colony (a penal one at that) but you are still subjects and not citizens. Why you complain about things like this when you do nothing to change into citizens is beyond me. [That was slightly sarcastic and cynical - but not completely.]
Any day now I expect to see throngs of folks in (f)GB and Oz in the streets carrying torches and pitchforks (regardless of the laws against doing so), headed for the Parliment buildings. There are, just as there were in the American colonies, too many who just do not care as long as whatever is happening does not interfere with watching reality TV and collecting a government dole check, what the legislative types do. It is estimated that barely 3% of the colonists were active in the revolution, and look what changes they were able to accomplish at the beginning. We are now in the thrall of reality TV and government dole checks ourselves, and headed for the same spot you are in. Only time will tell if those few who are presently muttering under their collective breaths will reach the apparenrly critical mass of 3% again.
I do believe with all my soul there was a reason that our American Founders reserved for us more than one way to adjust the way government operates. While hoping that we do not need to move to Option B I am glad it is there.
