Today, Prof George Williams argues for constitutional
amendment “to make it clear that
a prime minister cannot be dismissed by the governor-general if the Senate
refuses to pass the budget bills.”
Williams also says: “The House
of Representatives and not the Senate is the house of government.”
I agree, and propose that if we are to really let the elected government get
about governing we should revise the powers of the Senate – making it a true “peoples’
house of review” and not a block for issues elected governments have a clear
mandate to enact.
Caveat emptor for electors!
