In Australia a lot of independents and smaller parties are coming forward to support everyday Australians, unlike the majors - the Liberals, Nationals, Labor and Greens.
For our North American friends, the Liberals in Australia are meant to be our conservatives, like the Republicans but are more like the RINOs.
Then we have a layer of people in between who've been there for a while and who give the impression that they support the people but either don't, or the jury is still out on whether they do or don’t. We simply don’t know.
A recent comment by Romeo Georges has sparked questions about one party and a high profile candidate, namely the UAP (the United Australia Party) and its apparent leader Craig Kelly. Craig was previously a Liberal federal parliamentarian, whose opinions in parliament and publicly were opposed to those of his party. So he left and he became the leader of the UAP.
Romeo Georges had been doing his damnedest to help build up the UAP and helped them reach 83,000 members, the largest membership in any political body in Australia.
Watch the episode to find out why Craig Kelly might be nothing more than controlled opposition. I am not saying that he is but it doesn’t feel right at the moment. As always, you decide.
