Barnaby or Hanson?

By Everald Compton - posted Friday, 21 April 2017


The ALP will be forced to shed its Trade Union base if it ever again wants to win power in its own right. We must never again have political parties controlled by a small coterie of power brokers.

For the same reason, the Liberals will be forced to shed the big end of town. They are more evil than any Trade Union as they are dominated by a culture of greed.

The Greens will just die because the days of narrow ideologies are at an end.

One day, there will be just two parties -centre left and centre right – with all elections publicly funded so wealthy guys or groups can no longer control results.

In the meantime, Barnaby will have put rural and regional Australia back on the political, economic and social map. No party will ever again fail to invest in the whole continent.
