We have 19 days left to tell our story about putting people first.
We know our story is a good one. Tonight on ABC’s Q&A, Bill Shorten had a chance to talk with an audience of middle and working class Australians in an everyday suburban community.
When Bill talked about the importance of funding to schools and the National Disability Insurance Scheme — there was applause. When he said we will invest in our healthcare system — there was applause.
When Bill said we’re not against banks, we just don’t think they need $7.4 billion from the bottom line — there was applause.
And when he said it shouldn’t be how rich your parents are that determines your ability to get a higher education, it should be how hard you work — yes, there was applause.
We have a great story — and that gives us a chance to change Australia on 2 July.
Don’t miss your chance to be part of that. Show your support for Labor and contribute today.
Thanks for everything you do,
Head of Digital
