Senator Bernardi starts new conservative political force, the Australian Conservatives, to “give a voice back to Australia’s forgotten people”

Senator Bernardi starts new conservative political force, the Australian Conservatives, to “give a voice back to Australia’s forgotten people”. This news may have been spilled early by his wife who applied to trademark the name and logos of the new group, with the stated aim of providing the “services of a political party”.

In a rousing email to supporters on Monday, Senator Bernardi ­referred repeatedly to the “silent majority of Australian Conservatives” who were challenging “the leftist agenda of big government and decaying society”. It’s a global phenomenon and would be foolish to think it won’t emerge in Australia,” he wrote, citing the rise of Donald Trump.
