Same with our two "sides" of politics in Oz, of course. Ditto the rest of the west. Basically our governments act as the administrative arm, distraction and fall guy for the major multinational corporations who dictate national policy. He who pays the piper calls the tune. The two majors differ in the smaller policy areas their corporate masters permit them to determine without "guidance".
Sorry Bo! lol
