The Legalise Cannabis WA Party has secured a second seat in the Legislative Council, with candidate Brian Walker winning the sixth seat in the East Metropolitan Region.

Last week Legalise Cannabis WA's Sophia Moermond secured a seat in the South West region from 2 per cent of votes, while the Daylight Saving Party's Wilson Tucker was elected in the Mining and Pastoral Region with just 98 primary votes.

The election of these micro-parties was possible due to preference harvesting deals, where parties take turns in preferencing each other high in one region to boost their percentage of the vote.

We'd consider it a valuable bonus, and chuck it on the BBQ!

Given all the current angst about sexual harassment and disrespect for women in Australia's political institutions, it was a poor choice...

It's a nothingburger. Two right wing pundits desperate to find things to talk about.

The host, Peta Credlin, takes a puritan line about the routine, which is pretty tame. Credlin used to be Chief of Staff and key advisor to one of our weirdest conservative Prime Ministers, Tony "noddy onions" Abbott. Abbott was sacked by his own party when it realised that it was bound to lose the next general election if he remained at the helm.

Credlin's guest, Mark Latham, quite liked the show. Latham is a psychopath. During a dispute over a taxi fare he broke the driver's arm. Later he somehow managed to become the leader of the Labor Party. We dodged a bullet when Labor lost the general election under his leadership. After the loss he resigned from the party and eventually finished up with Pauline Hanson's United Australia Party. It's roughly equivalent to UKIP.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

It was a very stupid video, utterly confusing and basically irrelevant. Some ad agency hot shot will now lose face...
