What about the Opposition whose main role is to question the government of the day and hold them accountable to the public?
In a normal situation the Opposition represents an alternative government, and is responsible for challenging the policies of the government and producing different policies where appropriate.
Political pluralism is an inseparable part of democracy and the government’s acceptance of protest or of the opposition and the existence of an institutional representation of the political opposition are preconditions for the democratic operation of institutions.
Democracies are systems in which the peaceful rivalry for the exercise of power exists constitutionally.
In the words of Raymond Claude Ferdinand Aron, political scientist: “Transforming the ideal into the real requires more than single-minded determination.
“It requires, above all else, an understanding of those conditions which are likely to set limits to what men can achieve.”

Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
