The Xenophon solution

Plan to shake up Senate voting | Business Spectator

I find Nick Xenophon's proposed changes to the Senate voting system to be very reasonable.

They will upset Senator Leyonhjelm, who openly advocates gaming the voting system by the creation of microparties simply to direct preferences, so that people have no idea who they may get.  As we have seen in all other Senate or House of Reps election results, Leyonhjelm's party has a vanishingly small voter base, and he wants it to have a chance in future by the same devious tactic.   This deserves to be crushed.
