In fact, they're inside them and running the country.
Australia has a new government. Can you tell that I didn't vote for them?
In fact I didn't vote for the previous government either — I voted Green. But the Greens don't have enough support to form a government, and the government that's just been kicked out had somewhat better policies — most of them, anyway — than the one that's just been elected.
It's enough to make me question (if only for a moment) the sacred principle of compulsory voting.
