Australia's political system needs a revolution. This is the call to action.

If you want real change, change the system.

Reboot offers a tantalising glimpse of a better future, where politicians work directly and closely with those who voted for them.

Utopian? Disillusional? Richard Walsh makes a tour de force argument for doing away with the senate, embracing a republic and having a government where the prime minister and ministers are the best people in the country, not just chosen from the politicians who sit in the parliament.
