Reader feedback: Give us a useful referendum!

Re: No, again, to conflict of interests law, Flash news briefs, Jan 26 - Feb 1, Vol 10, No 3

If only the unions had decided to gather votes for a referendum on removing immunity for members of parliament and bringing in an effective conflict of interests bill. These are the kind of issues on which politicians can't be trusted to legislate.

And while they were at it, what about some link between average earnings and the salaries and pensions of politicians? Now that would have been interesting!
