Let’s hope those clamouring for election reform here take a good look at the UK result. One party now has 51% of the seats from 36.9% of the vote. As voting is voluntary, only 66.1% of those registered bothered to do so. This effectively means the UK now has a majority government for which only 24.4% of those entitled voted! Should we let the Australian major parties change the system so the same sort of thing happens here?
