A party to replace the dinosaur Liberal and Labor parties of Australia

The rationale for Australia’s Representatives – please download DRAFT slides: PDF | PPTX.

For over a hundred years there has been no innovation in politics in Australia. Our political parties are hierarchical organisations that operate opaquely, with extremely low level of engagement with and responsiveness to the voter.

Australia’s Representatives is a completely different political party to the dinosaur parties that operate in Australia today. Our elected members will represent the people and the values that Australians hold dear to their heart: liberty, justice and integrity; not the interests of party power brokers, vested interests, donors and lobbyists that represent global interests that are often inimical to the interests of Australia.

Even so, this new political party would not have come into being had things not gone so badly off the rails since March 2020. Over the course of the last year, the two major political parties of Australia have become totalitarian. They have entirely stopped listening to the people and treat the Australian Parliament and people with contempt. They are paid by the taxpayer to serve the people but they see it as their birth right to rule.

 In this manner, the Liberal and Labor parties which had already become distant from the people, have proven themselves entirely unfit to serve the people.

Australians are disillusioned and disappointed in the two-party system. It is therefore time for change, for a complete overhaul of how political parties should work. A new vision and new direction to democracy worldwide.

Elected members of Australia’s Representatives will represent the people, not the party. We will return Australia to what it was always intended to be, a Representative Democracy where the voice of the people is heard in the parliaments of Australia.

In doing so we will be guided by eternal values that find resonance in the human soul, and by policy frameworks that are reflective of evidence and careful thought.

  • To us liberty is not just an empty word as it is to the Liberal Party. It is a concept full of real meaning that must inform every action and every policy.
  • To us the welfare of the working class, the battlers and of those who cannot support themselves is not a euphemism to hide the vested interests of organised unions as it is for the Labor Party.
  • To us the need to acknowledge, remedy the harms and celebrate the future of the First Australians is not just an empty promise as it is for the Liberal and Labor parties.

We actually mean it when we say we support liberty and a fair go for every Australian.
