Amongst a deal of general misguided commentary Fraser Anning, the new senator representing the Katter Party, suggested we have a referendum on the intake of migrants. I notice the far right of politics is increasingly calling for referenda these days.
I suggest the general population would prefer the next referendum to be on the pay, perks and superannuation of politicians. As politicians represent the people I suggest their remuneration package should reflect those of the majority of the people they are supposed to represent. Given their current entitlements it is hard for them to represent properly people who can’t afford housing, or the significant number of people actually sleeping rough.
