Letter to the Editor - March 23: Time we had an election

FOR too long the nation has been held to ransom by misguided Senators and lack of national and political leadership by those who were/are our Prime Minister, Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull.

I welcome the possibility of a Double-D election in July and clean out both houses of self-interested politicians who only seem to be influenced by selfish minority groups across Australia.
