Sandra, you're right - understanding one's own country's electoral system is usually quite complicated enough! ;)
I read the article in your link, interesting.

Sounds like like election time in NZ.
Amy - And in many other countries as well, no doubt... The closer to home, the more one becomes aware of the consequences, though!
I was following on the news here. It seems as though the whole of Western Europe is moving politically to the right.
It certainly does, Graham, and I have to say it scares me a bit how quickly we seem to forget about the 'extremes' of the past.
