Thanks to the Democrats for trying

A salute to the Democrats as they leave the Senate for the last time, for their close interest in transparency and accountability issues, particularly Andrew Murray whose efforts included two Freedom of Information reform bills that never made it, and Natasha Stott Despoja for her advocacy of improvements in privacy laws, one of which would have made our political parties subject to the law, all to no avail. If they were less than entirely successful in "keeping the bastards honest", it wasn't for the want of trying.
