Money Can't Buy Me Democracy

With apologies to The Beatles. Read this.
As a result of the rampant truancy, the Speaker is contemplating "fining members $400 for every missed session" and replacing absentees. But... there's a problem. "For the proposals to be put in place, a majority of members in Parliament have to be present to pass them."
That's what a trillion dollars buy.
