And, in the Senate election to be held on September 7th in Australia, "Coke at the drinking fountain party" is calling himself.
Will Australia be able to drink cola from the tap if the party takes power? Will the dream (?) Of "I want to take a cola bath!" Be easily realized by anyone?
However, the party's aim is not to actually get cola out of the faucet.
The party name "Coke at the drinking fountain" makes a promise of "what you can't do" and spends valuable time discussing "what is meaningless when you can do it". It is said to be ironic about the current Australian politics. The party's website has the following explanation:
"We are a group of young Australians. We are worried about Australia's future and dissatisfied with the unreasonableness of politics.
We believe that the country's politics lacks intelligent debate to solve many of Australia's challenges. Problems include the need to reshape our economy and society in response to the global economic recession and global warming, and the increase in public spending in response to an aging society. We would like to send our representatives to the Senate to advance the debate on solving these issues. "
Apparently, "Coke at the drinking fountain" is a group that is seriously thinking about Australia's future.
Members of the party say Australians are fed up with a two-party system where the administration only moves back and forth between the "Labor Party" and the "Liberal Party." However, he claims that politics can be changed by adding a third party such as "Coke to the drinking fountain."
I don't know if this claim is correct. But it seems true that Australians are fed up with the two-party system. Reflecting that, 54 parties, the largest number ever, have made a name for themselves in this Senate election.
Some of the 54 parties are eccentric. For example, "Fishing and Lifestyle Party" says that there are too many prohibited fishing areas in Australia and more places to fish freely, " Pirate Party " that appeals for privacy protection, "Pirate Party" that claims the rights of smokers "Smoker's Rights Party " and so on. The Smoker's Rights Party has made radical claims that increasing the number of smokers can reduce publicly funded health care costs, as smokers die faster than nonsmokers.
