I have long been a strong advocate of greater bipartisanship in Australia's two-party system. By bipartisanship I mean "agreement or cooperation between two political parties that usually oppose each other's policies". The latter is a benign description of the my-party-right-or-wrong approach that usually characterises Australia's adversarial relationship between the two major sides of politics.
