On Saturday 21 Wynnum was visited by Mr Bill Shorten the leader of the Federal opposition for a public forum and to support our local Labor candidate Lara Fraser Hardy. A broad range of questions were put to Mr Shorten on subjects ranging from school bullying, tax with a strong opposition to an increased GST, loss of Australian flagged shipping and mariners and the persecuted Muslim Rohingya people of Burma. The audience asked a series of questions with Mr Shorten answering them in detail demonstrating intimate knowledge of Labor policy and public concerns.
It was a great opportunity to meet and find out a bit more about our local Labor candidate.
