Graeme-Weber

Graeme Weber has real vision for Australia’s future. Among which is the notion that Nuclear power is an option that Australian’s must consider into the future.

My name is Graeme Weber, and I live in the Federal electorate of Higgins, Melbourne, Victoria.
I am standing against Kelly O’Dwyer, the sitting Liberal Member. I have a strong liberal philosophy and believe that Australians must have strong parliamentary representatives who will balance budgets, grow our economy, respond to social imperatives, respect our environment and give Australians confidence for our collective future.Above all I am committed to positive and meaningful action in relation to climate change.

I believe most Australians feel outraged that both major political parties have lacked the courage, perspective and forward planning initiative to address this problem. My intention in standing as an independent candidate for Higgins at this Federal election, is to strongly press this fundamental issue highlighting the need for clean, safe energy solutions including nuclear power.

My candidacy and campaigning will show the Federal politicians that Australians support the adoption of a modern, properly regulated and well considered alternative power source that, ensures the nation can balance its economic and environmental and social needs into the future. It will also demonstrate that the reactionary, alarmist and ideological driven anti-nuclear lobby should no longer control the political debate.

Australian Politics

The Labor Carbon (dioxide) Tax imposed on the Australian population does nothing to tackle CO2 emissions. Those companies that can pass on the extra carbon tax cost will, so raising the cost of living for everybody. Those that cannot pass on the extra cost, mainly our exporters, become increasingly uncompetitive, resulting in reduced employment and loses in our manufacturing industries.

Party politicians have been captured by ideologues locked into late 20th Century positions. Policies for managing 21st Century social and environmental outcomes require open and honest debate. This will not occur unless demanded by the Australian electorate. My candidacy offers an avenue for an expression of that demand. Let us leave old and intermittent technologies behind in securing the clean energy future of Australia.

If you are in a position to help me in the campaign, either by time, delivering pamphlets, manning polling stations or are willing to donate please feel free to contact me.

Graeme’s Views

Graeme Weber has a strong liberal philosophy, but believes politicians today are failing us.

  • Nuclear Power is an alternative energy source that Australia should consider.

    Graeme believes that Nuclear power is a real option for Australia that the political parties are currently paying only lip service to.

  • Strong economy and Liberal Philosophies

    Graeme believes that strong economies are a result of good flexible Liberal policy. For all Australian’s to be wealthier we need a strong economy.

  • NO CARBON TAX, it was a lie, and it does nothing to help the environment.

    Graeme was shocked and disappointed that Julia Gillard lied to Australians. The Carbon tax does nothing for the environment. It is simply a revenue raiser for the government.
