Democracy at work. Not.

The Australian Independent Media Network

“The parliament tonight is in chaos.” Tony Burke

And with those words Tony Burke (Watson, NSW), the Manager of Opposition Business said what many were thinking.

That comment came at 10:27 Tuesday 10 December, when the Government used their numbers to gag debate, silence dissent and ram through legislation.

We currently have a completely incompetent government which is trying to tell us that “no” means “yes”, and this is damaging to our democracy.

The following exchange came barely 10 minutes after Mr Burke declared the parliament was in chaos. It is blatant example of the Speaker (Liberal MP, Bronwyn Bishop), changing reality to benefit the Government, of which she is a member.
