On Victorian Senators

Geoff Edwards writes: Re. “Hinch's Senate Diary: call someone else, I'm on the phone to justice” (Thursday)

Senator Hinch has sketched a remarkably circumscribed view of his role as a Senator for Victoria. Referring to the victims of child sexual assault, he opined that “It’s these unspoken victims that I am in Canberra to represent.” Perhaps, but only along with all the other electors in Victoria. His assertion might be a surprise to the people of Victoria who thought that the Senators were there to represent the State of Victoria in all its manifestations, voting as one electorate, not segmented into 100 interest groups.
