Australia goes to the polls for the Federal government election on 18 May 2019.
The promises are flying left and right.
What voters need to keep in mind is the values and stability of each of the major parties. Both parties have undermined their leaders over the last 10 years, and it’s embarrassing.
Both parties are in the centre, with both having more conservative members, and more liberal members. Compared to 50 years ago, neither party vary greatly, since we have been gradually becoming more and more liberal society anyway.
What we do know is that we will not have any movement on climate change under a Liberal government.
Under a Labor government, government spending is likely to increase.
Which party will make some movement on the policies we need in Australia?
Perhaps voting for a minor party or an independent is the solution in your area, if your electorate is not a safe seat for either party. But remember that the minor parties sell their votes, and your vote might end up with the opposite major party than you expected.
My recommendation is not to listen to the media, who don’t explain any policies properly. Do you own research. And do your research on the leaders of each party, and on each of your local candidates.
