“Let’s call a halt to this farce”

“I’ve tried to explain the actual purpose of Parliament to my kids (aged 6 and 10), who are becoming increasingly confused by my feeble attempts to provide a good reason for its existence. God help them if they ever have the misfortune to tune into a radio broadcast of a parliamentary sitting and hear the appalling, selfish and disrespectful rabble that is described as debate. Let’s call a halt to this farce now.”

Phil Jacombs, Seaforth, letter to the Sun-Herald.
