Via Brothers Judd comes this little Old Media reality dysfunction

Paul Austin in The Age, (December 14, 2006) rightly pointed out that democracy is not in trouble just because the DLP have got a seat in the Victorian parliament after 20 years. But, we should be troubled by Labor parties who preside over significant surpluses and don’t use them to adequately improve the health and well-being of our society. So powerful has the pull of neo-capitalism been, Labor runs the economy more conservatively than the conservatives.

So, it’s not democracy when politicians win elections by having policies of which the voters approve, but only if those policies are politically correct?
