    Hi guys, another very interesting and enjoyable ep. Thanks for the thoughtful discussion on the issue I raised, in relation to whether pollies should vote according to their conscience, or reflect the wishes of their electorate. On further consideration, I think Trevor is right to suggest that it depends on the issue. It occurs to me that the most compelling counter argument to my original argument is the death penalty. This is an issue on which we expect pollies to show leadership – if they didn’t, we’d probably have hanging back again, as it remains a popular idea.

    Anyway, I actually set out to respond to your discussion about the idiotic Lyle Shelton, to whom your podcast owes so much. You may have seen his comment this week that “you wouldn’t get approval to mine asbestos, so why do state governments approve of brothels?”. If you appreciate a good laugh, see #LyleLogic where the wits of Twitter have had a lot of fun matching two completely unrelated concepts to great comic effect, in homage to Lyle. Enjoy!
