ACT Opinions

Matt Thompson: a new face on the ACT’s political block

Nothing improves the political blood line of an electorate than a new party and new ideas. And it makes no difference if it’s only a party of one. The fact is, every political party that has ever been started began as the idea of one man or woman. Indeed had more parties been started by women, politics parties today might be a lot better than they are.

But the party I want to introduce is the Liberal Democrats whose representative Matt Thompson will stand as a candidate in the electorate of Ginninderra.

So who is Matt Thompson and what do Canberra’s the Liberal Democrats stand for?

Matt is the leader of the ACT Liberals Democrats. He is also a veterinarian with international experience and most recently a senior public servant. He left the public service to fulfil a passion for serving the community as a Liberal Democrat because that party’s philosophy of individual responsibility and building the voice of the individual so that they could be heard fitted his personal philosophy.

Both Matt and his wife are both dedicated to ensuring their two young daughters will continue to have a wonderful future and so wanted them to have the best education, health care and employment options. They feel Canberra is the place where this can be achieved.

However, Matt sees the challenges that need overcoming are high tax burdens and overbearing red tape so that these goals can be achieved, Small businessman himself he says he is dedicated to improvement in these areas to help improve ACT governance and small business.

He says also that what many politicians seem to have forgotten is that “Government is there to serve us, not control us.” With this in mind, as an MLA, I will seek to abolish the ban on stores giving free small plastic bags because it sales have shifted to Queanbeyan.”

He added: “The current ACT Labor Government with its mindset of banning first and asking questions later has made the ACT a ‘Nanny Territory’. Sadly a Liberal Government will likely do the same while the philosophy of the Greens seems to be hang on to Labor’s coat tails but from time to time in an effort to show that they are different from time to time make costly and impractical promises.”

As an MLA he promises to seek the removal of the restriction on home owners to remove trees on their own land. “We shouldn’t be forced to go begging to a bureaucrat, then seek approval from a compliant tree specialist or wait months for approval. It’s time ACT Governments stopped making life more costly and started serving the public. Government is there to serve us. Not to control us.”

He also promises to seek the overturning of some of the ACT’s liquor laws which are Australia’s most draconian which also force licensees to take responsibility for behaviour beyond their premises and their control. By doing so Government is ignoring individual responsibility and avoiding its responsibilities for enforcing the law.”

He said that during his career as a veterinarian he has seen many animals that have been trained to obey the command of their master and/or mistress. He considers that many of the people we elect as politicians act in the same way.

In his view, the time has come for politicians to practice the freedom of expression they boast about and also time for them to let party bosses know when they disagree with certain policies and that they intend to let the public and the voters who elected them know they disagree. Should ever this be achieved it could reshape how we are governed in the future.

Matt also policies on a wide range of other issues such as disability, transport and climate change et al that I’ll opine on later in the campaign.
