THE BICAMERAL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
THE .BICAMERAL SYSTEM. One hones that Australia is the most overlegislated country in the world. It has fourteen Houses to make laws foriless than five million people. Ac cording to the "Worker." Mr. Hol man.the Premier of New South Wales, proposes to fieht for the abolition of the Lenislative Council. Exactly how he is to accomnlish his purpose the paper does not condescend to explain. It is auite easy to ask a hadv of men to commit political suicide. but it is rather had to make them do it. But, passinc that. the bicameral system ib another matter about which the Libe ral Party will have to draw up a po licy which is not nebulous. Australia does not need fourteen legislative chambers. and the absurdity of the thine is supreme when the many elect one lot of members to do what they wish. and the few elect another cham ber to iundoit all. That particular form of humbur was possible when the many could not read-it is quito im possible when they are educated.
