LETTER: Family First vote an interesting sign

WE HAVE just witnessed how out of touch the major parties are with the voting public on the national level, particularly with those living in regional Australia.

The three major parties are increasingly driven by inner-city leftist agendas, not the concerns and aspirations of the broader population.

The high vote for the Family First candidate for Groom, John Sands, was a clear signal to the political elites that a growing number of voters are no longer going to tolerate being ignored.

Queenslanders want parties to represent their concerns and aspirations. They are tired of the constant change for change's sake. They are tired of the constant attack on traditional family values and our cultural norms.
