Bypassing democracy

They just get worse and worse.

Minister for Secrets, the appalling Scott Morrison, refuses to answer legitimate questions in parliament about the asylum seekers reportedly held captive for over two weeks on a customs ship.

Bully boy Treasurer Hockey says if he doesn't get his way with his budget he'll simply by-pass parliament and make cuts anyway.

Two fingers to parliament, democracy and us.

Remember the hairy-chested threat by Abbott to give us a double dissolution if the Senate didn't roll over and do exactly what he wanted? It's what we need, but he knows so well that he'll be thrown out of office by a huge majority if he does that he won't carry out his threat.

Instead he'll continue to do what he vowed never to do - negotiate with minor parties and independents.
