State and Federal Members of Parliament

On Monday night I found myself politically embarrassed.

I was talking to a friend about politics, they asked me who was my state and federal representative, and I did not know.

Now in the past I always pride myself in being politically active. That does not mean knocking on doors with pamphlets, but it does mean being aware of my local MP and what are the policies for which they stand.

It amazed me that I did not know the name of the person that speaks on my behalf in parliament.

In my defense I have only just become a citizen and therefore was previously unable to vote, but as of the 26th January, it is my duty as a citizen to ensure that I am familiar with my representative.

I need to know when they have their surgery, when they have their political meetings, and how I can make my voice heard.

In addition, I will need to become familiar with my council members as well, as they represent my local needs.

So thank you Kathryn for getting me back on track, and to answer your question, here are our representatives:
