Project Democracy

As you may have noticed, a lot of Convenient Solutions are things that can be done by government simply by bringing in a new rule - or in some cases getting rid of an old one. But how do we make sure governments are representing us (the people)?

One way is through Project Democracy. You can pick a Senator (or more) from the federal parliament, and Project Democracy will send you a weekly update on your Senator's actions. If you like, you can send the Senator your feedback.

For the past few weeks i've been tracking Senator Russell Trood (one of 12 Senators representing Queensland). To be honest, he's not generating much news. I think i'll add another senator - someone who's a bit more active.
