Who am I? – Matthew Stephen

I will never forget the night I told my wife I was going to run in politics. I found myself whining with my teammates about the state of this country and I told her I could no longer stand on the sidelines. With the way this country is heading I fear what future my 2 young children will face.

During my schooling only a few clicks down the road, I never saw myself entering politics. This is the area my parents bought their first home, I bought my first home and where I first started my business. Never had I imagined that I may be in the race to represent our area in federal politics.

I have 2 jobs. First and foremost is as a Husband to my high school sweet heart May, and father to our 2 beautiful kids.

Second, is running a small businesses as a tradesman and owning and operating cafes. We employ some 30 local tradesman and hospitality workers as well as training local apprentices. Like all small businesses it hasn’t been smooth sailing.

Without warning, in 2013/14 the principle contractor I was sub-contacting to decided not to pay us. A 2 year court battle followed. In that moment we went from 25 tradesman and apprentices with a healthy business to being 100s of thousands behind, having a mortgage on the family home, not knowing how I was going to pay the wages, how to keep food in the fridge and the lights on to feed my family.

The thought of folding up and running never entered my mind.

I got up in the morning and went to work. I fought, scratched and scraped, and worked 15 hours a day to trade my way out of 100s of thousands in the red.

I wasn’t easy however, I am one of the few small businesses to climb out of that hole many find themselves in.

Going through that made me realise how much red tape exists in this country to keep bureaucrats in a job without protecting people or serving any kind of purpose.

I am sick of these career politicians who have never had to face the daily grind and struggles that the people of Longman face sometimes just keeping food in the fridge and the lights on.

I want to bring back accountability, honesty and commonsense in our politics.

Let’s get rid of this PC rubbish that is crippling our society, create sustainable immigration that we can support, protect and defend our pensioners and veterans and fight for our farmers. Lets get politics back to what politics should be, fixing things.

This is why I decided to run.

Remember, we cannot change the past however, we together can shape the future.

Is this the future of Australia?

With a federal election within the next 12 months, I’m really concerned no one from either major parties are prepared to stand up for what’s right, particularly Labor given Terri Butler’s comments.

Farmers Thrown Under The Bus, Again – Vegetation Management Legislation

By forcing through flawed vegetation management laws Labor continues to demonise and attack farmers by treating them like criminals and today I had the honor of joining an army of fed up farmers demanding this ends so they start to get a fair go!

By attacking farmers Labor has shown it doesn’t care about primary producers, it doesn’t care about the environment, it only cares about keeping the greenies happy so they can farm their preferences.

If you want to support rural and regional Queenslanders and help our farmers you can contact Premier Palaszczuk (07) 3737 2100 or Jackie Trad (07) 3724 9100 and let them know you oppose Labor’s flawed and rushed vegetation management laws.

ANZAC Day Honoured from East to West

One Nation representatives from Queensland to Western Australia attended dawn services and street marches to commemorate ANZAC Day. Senator Pauline Hanson attended a dawn service in Mudgeeraba before travelling to attend the Brisbane street March.

Senator Peter Georgiou along with Senator Brian Burston and WA One Nation leader Colin Tincknell descended onto Albany to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War (1918-2018). It was in November 1914 in Albany where the Anzac spirit was born after 30-thousand service men from across Australia and New Zealand sailed out of King George sound.

For many it was the last time they would see Australia. Despite the drizzle on Anzac morning the sun beamed out later  lighting up the Anzac Peace Park on the Albany foreshore for the annual parade down York Street.

During the trip the Parliamentarians planted poppies on Middleton Beach and met several war veterans including 87 year old Korean War veteran Victor, who had been a POW for 18-months, which was truly a humbling moment.

Great numbers for ANZAC services were reported across the country, a testament to the enduring respect Australians have for our service men and women. To all members of our defence force, past and present, thank you.

Lest we forget.

You can see some video of the Brisbane street march below:
