If I were elected to office …
I would erect at every entrance to parliament house in Canberra a giant statue of Michael Leunig’s Mr Curly (and his ducks of course), in celebration of optimism, simplicity, whimsy, beauty and the fragility of nature. This would be a constant reminder to every MP and every visitor that there is more to serving the Australian public than budgets, bureaucracy and the bottom line.
For a less dollar-driven parliament, vote 1. Me.
