A House of Review

"Tasmania needs Senators who aren't obliged to vote with either the Government or the Opposition, but will vote sensibly based on what's genuinely best for families and Tasmania. Family First senators support and improve good laws, and will block bad laws. There's no checks and balances if the government is reviewing itself."
