Compare how Steve Martin and Ian Macdonald voted on more scrutiny of intelligence services & police
Former Independent Senator for Tasmania February 2018 – July 2019
Former Liberal Party Senator for Queensland July 1990 – July 2019
How they voted compared with each other and someone who agrees that there should be more scrutiny or oversight of the actions and powers of Australian intelligence and law enforcement agencies, including the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) and the Australian Federal Police (AFP)
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?
