One of the delightful outcomes of the weekend byelections in Australia was the failure of a member of the South Australian Downer family to be elected.
"the Downers, who have come from a long life of privilege and nepotism. Alexander Downer's parents were involved in political life and the aristocracy. ....So, yes, things have changed for Alexander Downer. The constituents in Mayo have wised up and have chosen politicians based on their policies.
Perhaps the lesson to be learnt here is that you cannot rely solely on nepotism and privilege to get what you want."
