Fighting Fund appeal (letter)

by Tom King

News Weekly, September 19, 2009

I applaud every element of the justification advanced by Peter Westmore in his 2009 Fighting Fund appeal letter (News Weekly, July 25, 2009).

However, the fundamental question underlying most of the confronting realities enumerated by the NCC's national president is this.

After decades of identifying national and states' political, ethical and moral shortcomings, and beyond that in so many instances identifying and articulating the political realities and action required, we are yet again in a situation where the majority of our political "allies", who masquerade as appreciating our dilemma, display no willingness or aptitude to effect change or unity of purpose.

As we approach another election of great significance, is it time to identify and back independent and proven Coalition candidates, as opposed to the principal party alternatives who clearly identify with the dictionary interpretation of "party" being a social gathering for pleasure, amusement or the like.

Unless we activate all of our resources, the talents and dedication of past and current staffers of News Weekly and associate publications will be of less consequence than deserved and so desperately required.

Tom King,
Bray Park, Qld
