MUST PARLIAMENT BE HUNG?
If the Australian Parliament is hung, it could be an artificial impasse created by representatives who are prevented by self-serving parties from separating and compromising on issues because they want to force a change of government. Could the incumbent government better organise the parliament’s business to operate a minority government and avoid deadlock?
Presumed Dead is a crime fiction story with a hung parliament, resolved by an independent woman politician who opposes and ends partisan politics.
Are city councils too small for political competition?
Are bears better at dancing than debating? Presumed Dead is a book that shows what can go wrong in a Westminster System council ruled by partisan duopoly when it supposed to consider approval of development of a megacasino. It takes an independent councillor who is elected mayor to inaugurate a non-partisan council. This is a political crime thriller that exposes weaknesses familiar in town hall politics, with entertaining drama and a positive perspective.
