Many readers have asked me over recent months about my political party membership.
I am pleased to announce today that I have joined the Australian Conservatives.
I remain very proud to have contested the last election with the Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA). I continue to call Debbie Robinson and the leadership of the ALA friends. Debbie has been very supportive of me and I thank her for that.
I wish the ALA all the best for the future and I have no doubt that we will continue to work together to prevent the Islamisation of Australia.
However, despite incredible efforts and hard work, the ALA struggled to gain sufficient public attention at the last election. It was also unable to unite the large number of conservative groups in Australia.
Cory Bernardi has a profile that appeals to a much broader segment of society. He also has a unique ability to unite conservatives. This was seen with the merger of Family First with the Australian Conservatives and the decision by Victorian MP and former DLP member, Rachel Carling-Jenkins, to join the Australian Conservatives.
I have worked with many people across various minor conservative parties since 2010. I am now finding that they are increasingly united within the Australian Conservatives.
That is a good thing for Australian politics. It is a better way.
While I hold no position within the Australian Conservatives and am simply one member among thousands, I will do all that I can to support the party grow (especially in Queensland).
And if you do live in Queensland, Rod McGarvie (former Family First senate candidate) has been putting together a tour for Cory Bernardi. It has been very encouraging to support Rod (with a number of others) as the planning has unfolded.
Come along if you can to hear from Senator Bernardi – I’d love to see you there. But you need to book fast. Tickets are running out!
