If you don’t vote Labor or advocate for change in Labor, then don’t bother reading any further. A large number of our readers have indicated they are for one or the other, so it’s worth publishing this for them.
From Labor came this email today:
“I’m writing to you from Canberra where – if the next two days in the parliament play out as we suspect – we are about to have confirmed that Australia is headed to a double dissolution election on July 2.
If that’s the case, then over the next ten weeks, we need to get Labor’s message to voters about our plans to put people first – things like our commitment to fund our schools so that every child in every school gets the education they deserve. And the fact we will fight tooth and nail against Mr Turnbull’s plan to privatise Medicare.
But if we want to make sure people understand what’s at stake this election, we need to tell real stories from everyday Australians about why these issues matter. That’s where we need your help.
We want to know what the most important issue will be for you this election and why. Can you tell us what issue matters to you and why you’ll be supporting Labor in just a few sentences?
During an election, it’s easy for politicians and journalists to get caught up on ‘gotcha’ moments and endless debate about the nitty gritty. Sometimes we miss what really matters – the real stories about how policies affect real people.
If you tell us your story in just a few words, you could help us show voters all around the country that electing a Labor government is the best way forward for a fairer and more prosperous Australia.”
I’ve been one of the first (among many) of being critical of a few of Labor’s policies – or lack thereof. They are now asking for our input so instead of complaining I’m instead going to click on the link provided and tell them what I will be advocating for and voting for. Perhaps if we could all do this – and get as many people to do so – we might actually have a powerful voice. I hope they will listen. I’m counting on them to.
