The Australian double dissolution election means all the Senate seats are up for contestation (usually it is only half). What this means is that parties such as the greens and independents can win seats. It means we may actually have a democracy where views other than the majority can be expressed. The majority still has to vote new rules law etc. in. So good luck to independents, minor and smaller parties. Turnbull must know this, that is the strangest thing. The master puppeteer is applying his trade.
