Bob Brown – an Honorable Man

Published April 23, 2012 by Michael C Leeson

QandA tonight featured Bob Brown former leader of the Australian Greens  , Brown plans on resigning his Senate seat in June, hence a significant moment in Australian politics. It will be a sad day for Australia there will be one less radical voice in a parliament dominated by the narrow-minded mediocrity of middle class vanilla politics. While I cannot say Bob inspired my interest in politics however, I do share many of his views on a diverse range of issues, which may surprise many. This is my salute from one old radical queen to another cheers Bob, I am not sure who will keep the flame of democracy alive here now, maybe you have inspired enough people to keep on speaking the truth in the face of right wing creep
