Matthew Thompson
Candidate for Swan

My name is Matthew Thompson. I have been a working class man my entire adult life. I joined the army at seventeen, and have been earning my way ever since. I moved to WA in 2012 to work in the mines. My partner and I have since been blessed with a wonderful daughter, who's just starting primary school.

I joined the LDP, and I'm running for Parliament, for her. Because I am bloody furious at the debt that she will be saddled with. Because for her to grow up "Young and Free", the septic tank that is our parliament needs to be flushed, and the bureaucracy cut down to a sensible size. Because "Wealth for toil", needs inflation curbed. And none of the majors seem capable of that.
