The groovy new government in the mighty state of Queensland, is coming up with lots & lots of much needed changes.
Things which due to the inertia of modern politics, we never dared imagine we'd ever see happen!
A proposed law will be that trade unions will not be able to make donations to political parties without this first being put to a vote of the members of that union.
This concept of members having input into what is done with their money is new for trade union leaders.
They can barely grasp this principle.
A horrifed trade union leader was on TV the very night this proposed law was suggested.....
..... without any sense of irony, he said that having members vote on political donations would be undemocratic.
