A Commonsense Fair Alternative
For us, it's all about looking at issues on their merits and working out the best outcome for everyone. Politics should never just be about left or right, it should always be about right or wrong.
We stand for:
Honest and accountable government
Looking after the national interest - not vested interests
Our core focus is:
Australian Made & Australian Jobs
- Government & Corporate Accountability

Nick is a passionate advocate and watchdog for South Australia’s interests.
He has pushed for many reforms that benefit not only South Australians, but all Australians - including pokies, water, food labelling, manufacturing, education and healthcare.
