This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website. If you are able to contribute even $1.00/month to keep the site running, please click the Patreon button below.

A healthy and vibrant Opposition is regarded as essential in a parliamentary system of government.

Definition of Opposition: The party or parties which hold the second largest number of seats in the House of Representatives. The leader of that party or coalition of parties is known as the Opposition Leader and is the nation’s alternative Prime Minister.

A strong Opposition is able to question the government and hold it to account for its actions.

The Opposition is able to provide both alternative policies and an alternative government and Prime Minister.

The Opposition’s spokespeople are known as Shadow Ministers.
