A recurring theme during the election campaign was the question, why bother voting? And from that quite frequently flows: Let's break away. But how?

Answers to that seem to be taking shape in several quarters. Desert Knowledge chairman Fred Chaney suggested getting rid of the states and running the country from Canberra and through local governments on steroids.
