Summary “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.”--Back cover
