Three years ago in the lead up to the last Australian federal election I did a series of posts describing how the Federal Parliament and the voting systems work in Australia.

With a new federal election just around the corner, it's probably worthwhile bringing them back up again. So, without further delay:

How Your Vote Works:


I hope this helps.

Also - If you are voting in this election, I wholeheartedly recommend you visit Below The Line to help you organise your Senate voting ticket. While you can simply vote 1 above the line, if you do that you are giving your vote to that political party to allocate as they see fit. With the way Senate voting works in Australia, preferences are very important and badly allocated preferences can see the wrong people (ie the people you don't want to get in) getting in on your vote.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the man’s desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love
