"I formed the Australian Conservatives last year because I truly believe that our country needs a better way.
That we need to put principles ahead of personalities and that we need to make sure that we are consistent with the application of policy in politics.
That’s what the Australian Conservatives is all about.
Success is not going to happen overnight. In fact, my father often said to me, ‘overnight success sometimes takes 20 years’. It’s not going to take us 20 years to become successful.
But it will take a lot heck of a lot of work and a heck of a lot of resolve.
We’ve got the people that want to do that.
We are going to continue to pursue our principled approach to politics come hell or high water because we not doing for you, we're not doing it for me, but for our children and the future of our great country.
That’s what Australian Conservatives is all about. Stick with us. We will achieve our goals.
We just need to have the resolve to see them through to completion."
