So cool to welcome Greg Day, who was on the Q&A panel with me a few weeks ago, to Parliament House. He’s here for a few days, spending time with me, Senator Peter Whish-Wilson and Senator James Paterson. And here we are with Ged Kearney, Greg’s (amazing) local MP.
Greg expressed some concern about the state of Australia’s democracy and I thought a visit to Parliament might convince him to maintain a bit of faith.
There is a lot that goes on in politics that’s not about conflict or partisanship. I think if people saw a bit more of it, they wouldn’t feel so down on our democracy. There is a lot that’s wrong, for sure, but still a lot of things that work well and certainly a lot of people who are here, trying to work in the national interest.
Hope you enjoyed your visit Greg!
