teenie was saying. I am a christian, & I 100% and would fiercely defend the right for ANYONE to practice their religion, whatever it may be. I have friends from a range of religions (and no religion), & we are all "accepting" as you put it. I completely agree there are ar$eholes who are christian - just like there are ar$eholes who are muslim, hindu, buddhist & athiest. Let's not put everyone in one basket based on religion - otherwise we are really not any better than Pauline Hanson putting all "muslims" or "asians" or whoever else she opposes into one basket.

Eta : the two methods are the order method so the first six to be elected get the six year terms and the next 3, or the recount method where they recount as if it was a half senate election where there is a higher quota

There are 2 ways of working it out - and different senators will get the 6 year terms under each method though so they will have a fun little stoush working out who gets the longer terms.

Because of the DD? 6 years is so long!
Does that mean some electorates won't get to vote for the senate?
I know these are stupid questions. Sorry. I can't politics. It bends my head.
ETA I just read Antony's article and I get it!
*whispers* I still don't get it!
