Why I joined Australian Conservatives

By Lyle Shelton - posted Thursday, 8 February 2018


We are here because the centre in both parties has shifted too far to the Green Rainbow Left.

A vote for Australian Conservatives is not a vote to wreck conservative governments. It is a vote to draw their compass back to truth north. Our preferences will always flow to candidates who support conservative virtues.

The choice Queenslanders currently have is a Senate cross-bench populated by Greens on the extreme Left or a party of protest on the extreme right.

The Australian Conservatives offers a constructive, principled conservative voice in the sensible, common sense centre.

A vote for Australian Conservatives is a vote to bring common sense back.

This is a movement that offers real hope – perhaps our only hope. I'm glad to be joining.
