Thankfully we have excellent choices with Labor, The Greens and Independents.
This inept #LNP Liberal National Party is in complete disarray due to the bullying and exploits of the far right factions that choose fear and divisiveness over kindness, vision and cooperation. Their scandals and corruption are rife, and #LNP have done sweet bugger all for our exceptional farmers and gardeners who ‘could’ not only feed Australians but do so much more with exports if only we had competent and dare I say gifted politicians making the decisions.
I won't even begin with the horrific mismanagement of animal welfare, our rivers, forests, oceans and environments of all kinds by the #LNP. I'd like to see Labor and The Greens forming a coalition though that's unlikely ever to happen even if there are many like me whose vote swings between the two.
I'll be backing the #ALP even though barrister Julian Burnside who says "Our political system is broken. I'm very troubled by climate change and our mistreatment of asylum seekers. Worried about the level of dishonesty in politics" is signing on for #TheGreens.
Please check Labor's plan and some of the brilliant Independents' and vote in May after doing all your research.vote in May after doing all your research. If you've never been political before - now is the time! OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON YOUR VOTE AND PERSONAL EFFORTS. #BillShorten and #TanyaPlibersek are leaders of substance with imaginative and workable visions for the present and the future. Oz needs a strong and united team such as the ALP to sort out the mess they'll inherit then govern to make Australia a country we can be proud of.
Former Conservative Prime Ministers Tony Abbott and John Howard Support Convicted Paedophile Cardinal Pell
The president of the Blue Knot Foundation, Cathy Kezelman, said demand for the childhood trauma service spiked when a suppression order lifted on 26 February, revealing Pell was guilty of five charges, including sexually penetrating a 13-year-old choirboy.
“It’s been so challenging, as we’ve had double the normal amount of calls since then,” Kezelman said. “Some people are acutely distressed. The story is playing out in public in such a way that it’s impossible, almost, to avoid it.” Link to the Guardian Story
