Our next Independent, as we fly over Hungary and Romania, is Christopher Beslis, who is running for public office ‘on a platform with fresh ideas to improve our country’. He is doing this because he feels the major parties are no longer listening to the public. I’d say he has a point there.
It’s hard to summarise Mr Beslis’s policies, for the simple reason that most of them are single sentences. However, his opening statement gives you a pretty good idea of where he is coming from:
I decided to run for public office because I want to serve the people of Victoria and the people around the country to improve society with policies to help those less fortunate such as: people in poverty, the hungry, the homeless, the physically disabled, the intellectually impaired and pensioners.
His policies are, as you might imaginem fairly socially progressive and left wing, which is how I like them.
