Compare how Sharman Stone and Matt Thistlethwaite voted on implementing refugee and protection conventions
Former Liberal Party Representative for Murray March 1996 – May 2016
Australian Labor Party Representative for Kingsford Smith since September 2013
How they voted compared with each other and someone who agrees that the federal government should implement the international conventions that relate to seeking refuge and protection from torture. These include the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees and the non-refoulement provisions of the UN Convention Against Torture and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
Now this is where it gets a bit tricky… Two people might vote the same way on votes they both attended, so their votes are 100% in agreement. They might also have voted in a way we’d describe differently when looking at all of one person's votes. If the other person didn’t or couldn’t have attended those votes we leave those out of the comparison. Because that just wouldn’t be fair now, would it?
