ACT Opinions

Posted on: 29 September 2012

Will Darren Churchill be the Democrats resurrection man?

In respect of the election on Saturday 20 October, it would be tempting to say that Darren Churchill a candidate in Gininderra, is the last standing member of the ACT Branch of Australian Democrats.

But it would be wrong to do so. Whether or not there is a family connection and even though, politically speaking the Democrats chips seem down, because Darren seems to have a touch of the same spirit as the illustrious British politician whose name he shares, he should not be written off.

Indeed it would be great if the ACT had more wannabe politicians with the same spirit.

Unlike candidates from other parties whose reason for standing often seems obscure, Darren is up front with his reasons: for him Democracy is not just a political shibboleth. For him Democracy means politics with a purpose for the community not just the shibboleth that some people keep shouting about to disguise their inadequacy. Unlike Darren they use the word Democracy to disguise their goal of acquiring status and recognition.

Thankfully for the community, most of these politicians fail and go away never to be heard of again while Darren, never taking no for an answer, gets back into the political boxing ring again and again.

As an example of his persistence, Darren was a candidate for Fraser at the 2007 Federal election, a candidate for Ginninderra at the 2008 ACT Election and a candidate for the Senate in 2010.

That apart, Darren has been a secondary school teacher and worked in both the music and fitness industries.

But more to the point in his election campaign Darren’s main interests are: better public transport; the introduction of meaningful drug law reform; the creation of a sustainable population policy; a clear policy on civil liberties; and policies that give ordinary Canberran a “fair go.” He also wants to help keep the Government accountable

Should the voters of Ginninderra choose to elect him, even if he only manages to persuade the Assembly about the importance of a better public transport system and that something needs to be done about it quickly, he will have achieved more than many MLAs who have been ensconced in the Assembly for a long time.

In political terms Darren sees the Democrats as the natural party of the crossbenches – the negotiators, a skill he says that will help make the needle/syringe program at the Alexander Maconochie centre possible.

He feels Canberra also needs a stable population policy that will keep it a sustainable and liveable city. And he will also work for electoral reform to enable a greater of variety of views to be represented in ACT elections.”

The only question I have is: will Darren prove be the Democrats resurrection man?
