SOCIAL POLICYCenter Left
I am a retired Australian with a tolerant view and acceptance of an individual's entitlement to different opinion and expression. I come from a working class background with essentially high school education and some under-graduate studies towards business management.
I live in a social democracy and my forebears were founding members of branches of the Aust Labor Party and Trade Unions prior to the formation of the Commonwealth of Australia. I have been a workplace delegate of a trade union and also attained middle management status in a large Australian Telco. I have never been a member of a political party although toyed with the idea some 30 years ago. I am disenchanted with the political party machinery.
