Peter Fitzsimons opinion piece on the government's response to allegations in Liberal Party Ranks. We Are Hughes provide comment on Craig Kelly becoming an independent and if this changes things for us. From the article: What’s most interesting though is that Kelly doing a runner from the Libs has changed nothing for the We Are Hughes mob who are seeking to do in their electorate what Warringah Voices did by beating Tony Abbott in Warringah with strong Independent Zali Steggall.

“Nothing has changed,” one of the founders Linda Seymour tells me. “It highlights that party politics is all about party first, people second. Kelly was personally endorsed over local branch wishes by three Liberal prime ministers across 10 years, that decision was never about Hughes or real democracy, it was about maintaining power. We are Hughes are about endorsing a candidate that puts people and constructive politics first.” Link to the article
