Xenophon true to his commitment

I often feel I’m the only Nick Xenophon Team member way up here in the northeast corner of NSW.  I’m 88.  I can no longer travel.  I never expected to meet Nick in person.

Well true to his commitment to a fair go for all, he came to the Coorabell Country Hall to talk about the damaging behaviour of the two grocery giants.  He arrived at the hall – no flags, no fanfare, no self-importance, no Zegna suit, sleeves rolled up, ready to ‘go to bat’ for the disadvantaged.

I had a photo taken with him.  I feel like a groupie.

Nick’s more important to our democracy and deserves more than this old man’s excitable behaviour.

He’s given us hope that we can break out of the straight-jacket of the big money two party system – that we can again exercise the true power of our vote.

Dare to dream people.  A vote in hope is much more exhilarating than a tired vote in resignation.

Ken (Stents) Nicholson, Kingscliff

P.S.  Xenophon in ancient Greece was a warrior, historian and philosopher who sat at the feet of Socrates.  I like that.
