Higgins
Norris

I'm confident I don't need to fill out beyond this. Higgins will need my vote.

I can't believe Sean Gallagher did so well. I got worried when quite a few people told me he was their first choice and then hearing the progress this morning. I'm a little baffled.

But anyway, I'm happy with Higgins winning.

1) Higgins - because I think he'll do the job well.
2) Norris - because I like the cut of his jib.
3) Davis - because she's vanilla enough for the role.

I voted No on both referenda.

I think the state has more than enough power to conduct investigations as it is. It's we who watch the watchers.

While I think that judges are already paid quite nicely, it's hard to avoid the way that wealthy people guard their wealth, or the lengths they will go to to safeguard it. It's a stretch to imagine the wholesale control of judicial opinion for fear of a pay cut, but I still think that any mechanism by which the Houses could exercise control over the judiciary is a bad thing.


Pedantic side note:
Oxford English Dictionary wrote:Referendums is logically preferable as a plural form meaning ballots on one issue (as a Latin gerund, referendum has no plural). The Latin plural gerundive referenda, meaning things to be referred, necessarily connotes a plurality of issues.
As yet I have not found a single case of a terrestrial animal which fertilises itself.
