Party formation a joke

Jacqui Lambie obviously suffers from delusions of grandeur.

Having only received 1501 personal votes at the last federal election, her move to establish her own political party – the Jacqui Lambie Network – could be viewed simply as a bad April Fools Day joke.

Unfortunately, it appears to be true, and is indicative of the sorry state in which our federal Parliament now finds itself.

Undoubtedly there will be some electors who support Ms Lambie at the next election, and there is an outside chance that she may even be re-elected by “above the line” voters on a party ticket.

I support the election of independents, but only on the premise that they receive sufficient personal support to be able to say, in all honesty, that they genuinely represent their electorate.

Horse trading in preferences that resulted in the current crop of micro-party representatives should be outlawed.

In Tasmania a quota is approximately 1400 votes and if Ms Lambie could convince anything like that number of Tasmanians to give her their number one vote, I would happily endorse her right to sit in Canberra.

Until such time as this occurs however, I remain sceptical of her position.
