Detective Sing and his friend, John, were walking down the streets of Melbourne on the evening of Election Day.
They walked past a young boy selling newspapers. As they got close they heard him call out "John Howard wins Government again - he's secured a majority in the Senate!"

John rushed towards the boy to buy a paper, eager for the latest news, but Detective Sing stopped him.

"The boy is lying," said Detective Sing.

How did he know?


Answer

In Australia, the Senate is the Upper House of Parliament. To win Government, you must secure a majority in the Lower House - the House of Representatives.
