OOC: No problem, I can certainly see why Richards is a strong pick for the position. Also, on the house floor, Ian Harlow is good enough. The Alexander is just a middle name. Ian Alexander in one name doesn't sit right with me for some reason Tongue.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

When does the campaign start?

We should probably start work on a platform, which each minister developing a policy manifesto for his respective area to be agreed to by the rest of the party.

Yeah I would suggest that Mr Oakleigh assign drafting proposals on the different policy areas to the persons (probably in accordence with their shadow ministries) that he finds best suited to draft them. The drafts should then be posted in this thread and we should vote on to wether approve them or not. Though as our budget philosophy is probably the most important part of our platform that should probably be drafted by the leader and the Treasurer together. 

As we want to give a clear message and show a united front and don't fall into faction squabble like the Labour party has already done (You can't leave the left with itself for ten minutes with-out them starti ng to fight internally) we should try to focus on basic things that we all can get around and focus on the policies Speaker Hugh has given us and not get run down on Republic vs Monarchy and Social issues. We can create polcies for that later.

But that's only my oppinion.

Sounds good, let's do that.  Write policies for your ministry, although I reserve the right to change them somewhat if they're too off-message or extremist.

I am out of town right now and am using either my phone or my aunts computer which is very old and slow. I can have my manifesto ready by Wednesday evening, if that is alright with you.

I've submitted my plank. It was not as specific as I had wanted to it to be, but my hope is that I'll pick up a better understanding of Australian politics as we move along.

Hope it's not too late to sign up...


Barkley at a town hall

Name: Richard C. Barkley
Age: 45
Ideology: Liberal (economic and social).
Place of Birth: Adelaide, SA.
Residence: Mount Barker, SA.
Occupation: Editor.
Family: Wife Katya (38), son John (13).
Brief Biography: The only child of a teacher and a Santos executive, Richard took an interest in politics from an early age, including a leadership role in his high school's Young Liberals. He continued this involvement when he went to the University of Technology, Sidney, where he received a B.A. in Communication (Journalism) and in International Studies. He then purchased a home in Mount Barker and worked at The Advertiser, later joining The Independent Weekly when it was founded in 2004. He got involved in politics several years prior, serving in a variety of party roles before eventually rising to represent the district of Heysen in the Parliament of South Australia for six years (2002-2008). He became an MP in 2008, representing Mayo, and has been relatively quiet in Parliament since, attempting to tend to the needs of his local community.
Other: A practicing member of the UCA. Although generally with the party in support of free-market capitalism, he is supportive of same-sex marriage and abortion access and is a republican (thought not one to rail about such issues either way). He supports strengthening ties with allies and an increased focus on regionalism, and opposes foreign military interventionism. He is fluent in English, French, Russian, and Arabic. Although a relatively decent orator, he strongly prefers print journalism to television. When not working, he enjoys travel, hiking, and maintaining his large bonsai collection. He owns several snakes and lizards, and an albino salamander.

Division: Mayo, SA
