One Nation recently held a community forum on Family Law organised by One Nation’s Western Australia state leader Colin Tincknell.
Colin, who sits in the WA upper, is a strong campaigner for family law reform. Speaking on the floor of the WA parliament, Colin delivered an impassioned call for the system to be overhauled, saying:
“Every week in Australia three men commit suicide and one woman is murdered. I do not know whether that is acceptable to anyone. I cannot imagine that it would be. It is certainly not acceptable to me. Two hundred people a year die because of shortfalls in the system. We as a society need to get better at handling this. We have a duty to this society to make it better. The subject always seems to fall into the too-hard basket. The two major parties— that is, the Liberal and Labor Parties, because one is in government federally and one is in government at the state level—need to take this matter seriously.”
Australia’s failed family law system is a national shame and One Nation will fight tooth and nail to see that it is addressed.
