Vale Peter Andren MHR

04 Nov

Someone said in the past day or so that Peter Andren, the Independent member for Calare in the central west of NSW, was a parliamentarian rather than a politician. We could do with more of that.

As Wikipedia notes, he was a teacher, television reporter, presenter and producer and radio and television news editor with CBN and 2GZ before entering politics. “He was also a vocal critic of Australia’s policy on asylum seekers, and the Iraq War. His two party-preferred vote of over 75 per cent made Calare the second-safest seat in Australia. This is the greatest achievement by an independent in Australia’s political history.”
