" ... Simple: Vote for every Independant on the list irrespective of thier policies (or lack of them) and make the Incumbents earn their place at trough...."

Re: Democracy, Transparency and Freedom of Information.

"... No, don't do that. That's how the Greens got into power in the first place. THAT'S why you're paying as much for power as you are."

Electricity supply is a State responsibility. There are no Greens in any position of responsibility in any state parliament. The op opinion is thus a logical lunacy.

See instead the opinion of, for instance, The Gratton Institute @ https://theconversation.com/why-australians-are-getting-a-raw-deal-on-electricity-prices-13296, as to why the increase in electricity prices have substantially outpaced inflation.

re nbn

As access to overseas clouds is limited by bandwidth surely this is another example of the National Broadband Network's business generating potential. A pity that the potential of these investments will be crippled if the coalition gets elected. Odds on that they will reprioritises the NBN to the never never because they view it as an impossibly expensive toy for pirates competing with their mates at Foxtel and FreeView.
