I do not want to be locked in the past by political
filibusters; led by dinosaurs delaying, destroying
lives for their own agendas.
I want elected defenders that seek substance with honesty, show empathy, seek careful knowledge. No more trawling a tender for any pernicious gain or touting plans to pick

I want government to be presenter, of something different, to be innovative, an inventor of inclusive ideas and ideals that are never about being an accusing avenger.
Why not seek sustainable society together?
Make community regeneration vital and viral – the next trendsetter?
Please share the hashtag of unity and a communal wish to make all our lives so much better.
