Political tomfoolery

Political tomfoolery annoying me today*

People who suggest (or sometimes say outright) that because the Gillard Labor government is a minority government , that it is somehow, undemocratic, or unconstitutional, or invalid, or illegitmate, and that therefore Australians have the right to a new election.The fact is, whether you love it or hate it, or anything in between, whilever it has the confidence of a majority of members of the lower house it is the rightful government, and will remain so for another 2 years.

*Today’s annoyance inspired by some ingloriously ignorant vox pops heard on the AM program this morning.
