Link: “Why is Australia's parliament so white?

Original post found at: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-61432762

Good article from the BBC here. Australia’s ethnic diversity is not at all well represented in our parliament, and the article points to the recent cases of Kristina Keneally sidelining the already-preselected Tu Le in Fowler, and Andrew Charlton pre-empting a preselection vote at all in Parramatta, as examples of how diverse representation is a very low priority for Labor (but not at all a priority for the Libs).

a cartoony avatar of Jessica Smith is a socialist and a feminist who loves animals, books, gaming, and cooking; she’s also interested in linguistics, history, technology and society.
