Give us back our Country!
Reverend Fred Nile with CDP Campaign Media Manager Annie Wright and his wife Silvana Nile (middle)
Earlier this week, Fred Nile, his wife Silvana and their Campaign Media Manager Annie Wright were in Orange as part of their campaigning for the upcoming Federal Election.
Silvana Nile is standing for the Senate under the Christian Democratic Party banner, she’s Number 1 on their Senate ticket with Annie Wright Number 2.
The team gave a presentation to a group of supporters on Monday Night and at the same time launched a new documentary film on Fred’s life called “Love Him or Loath Him – Fred Nile”. The film featured highlights of Fred’s achievements throughout his 37 year career in politics and featured comments from many of the former notable political leaders who have served during his time. Fred held the respect of politicians on all sides of politics including former PMs John Howard and Tony Abbott, NSW Premiers Nick Greiner, Bob Carr, Mike Baird and Gladys Berejiklian and MP Pru Goward. Based on the comments of these people, along with those of radio shock jock Ray Hadley and well-known journalist Miranda Devine, Fred was highly regarded and respected for the way he balanced standing up for what he believed in, yet didn’t use the considerable power he had, often having the balance of power, to hinder the government of the day from governing. His skill as a legislator was highly regarded and he is given considerable credit for helping make what was often considered good legislation even better. It was also acknowledged that Fred was always fair game for the media, over time he became his own “brand” and as such, the media often had a field day with issues that he raised or took a particular interest in. The media thrives on controversy and Fred was frequently involved in controversy, particularly anything to do with moral issues.
Love him or loath him, as the film’s title so aptly puts it, Fred Nile has improved the life of millions of Australians in ways that many may not even realise, and he intends to continue to do that for as long as his ageing body and mind will allow. Interestingly in the film, Pru Goward made the comment “they only hate you if you’re effective”. Fred will soon be 85, currently still has four years to serve, and despite all he has already suffered and achieved, he shows no signs of stopping yet.
In the meantime, his wife Silvana has positioned herself to carry on the Nile tradition and is seeking to win a seat in the Federal Senate. Silvana is considerably younger than Fred, but clearly has the same passion and heart as her famous husband and is ready for the challenge. One of the themes she’s pushing in her campaign is “Give us back our Country!”
Her campaign policies include: Zero tolerance for domestic violence, Zero tolerance for child pornography, Remove all “Safe School” transgender (Fluid Gender) programs from all Australia Schools, Defend our Constitutional Monarchy, One law for all Australians – No Sharia Law – No Sharia Courts, Freedom of speech, Freedom of religion, Pro-Life – no abortion, no euthanasia, Support traditional marriage, Environment: Yes to Coal Fired Power Stations and NO to fracking of Cola Seam Gas/ Yes to nuclear power, Affordable housing, Increase pension payments to meet cost of living, Increase nurses in public hospitals, Increase intake of Christian refugees, Climate change action, Increase Police numbers and salaries, Increase drought relief for farmers.
Silvana and the CDP believe Australia deserves better and we should all ask ourselves, given what’s happening or has happened in so many of the areas mentioned above “Is this a better way of doing life or not?”
Silvana Nile asks anyone who believes life in Australia could or should be better, or who wants to see us get our Country back, to give her your Number 1 vote on the Senate ticket on May 18.
