同 #8217; 係咩標題話, 但你還能指望甚麼 “年齡” 布
首相马尔科姆越來越唔受歡迎同唔信任, 因他被認為缺乏勇氣的信念, 並畀個基本的權力欲望驅動. 反對黨領袖法案的縮短係常年不得人心同唔可信嘅, 因為佢被視為未定罪, 並被權力的慾望驅使.
世界各地的政治正被沸騰的不平等不滿, 不公平和明顯同唔體面的立法者的意願, 以征服黨嘅公共利益, 個人利益和既得利益. 但將係唔合理嘅譴責政治階層集體, 或失去對政治進程的所有信仰.
Elections are decided by undecided voters – the 2 per cent or so who are swinging voters.
在我們的議會入面有好多令人欽佩嘅人. 係大約三佢哋: people who exhibit altruism, integrity and authenticity, who embrace evidence-based policy rather than ideology, and who have convictions and the courage to battle for them respectfully.
Senate Opposition Leader Penny Wong is what we should seek in a lawmaker – experienced, 原則, 合作. 佢係鋼鐵般的, 但唔妥協. A lesbian who accepted but did not agree with her party’s previous opposition to marriage equality, 佢喺內部鬥爭, 以改變政策, 並成為最受尊敬的之一, respectful and convincing advocates for ending that injustice. 佢同佢家人--佢既伴侶同兩個女--而戰得好好, 仲有好多其他嘅家庭遭到啲歧視200万澳洲人誹謗, 佢哋唔係異性戀。.
黄竹係當代澳洲歷史上最好嘅領袖之一. 可惜她不在下院, 因為佢, 高於所有其他喺我哋嘅聯邦議會, 將成為最好的總理.
當佩妮正努力把她的政黨圍繞婚姻平等, 昆士蘭自由議員沃伦 entsch 在聯盟內做同樣嘅嘢. 多年, 前釬工, 農民, company director and real estate agent worked diligently to convince his colleagues that the only thing that would happen when Australia joined the rest of the industrialised world in passing marriage equality was that people in love would marry. He has helped many people realise that conflating same-sex marriage with parents’ 言論和宗教的權利和自由是無稽之談.
菲奥娜彭定康, 維多利亞上院嘅成員, 原因係黨嘅創建者和領導, formerly the Australian Sex Party. She has been a calm, 以證據為基礎的一系列政策嘅禮貌倡導者, 係個人權利的擁躉. 她提高了社區對一些基本問題的認識.
She was instrumental in two recent groundbreaking changes – the trial of a safe injecting space for adult heroin users, 和細緻的立法, 允許在嚴格規範的情況下醫生協助死亡. Her policy platform draws on evidence and is sensible and decent. 它的設計, 最重要的, 保護個人自由和人權.
選民係啱嘅皇家憤怒的現狀. 彭妮和緊沃伦 entsch, 佢地可以, 雖然, 搵到啲救助, 主流政黨未完全喪失. 在菲奥娜彭定康, 佢哋可以支持一個由公眾利益凌駕於黨派權力之上嘅立法人.
