Out of 39 candidates in the 2016 East Gippsland local government election, 82 year old aviator, Ben Buckley, topped the poll with 8.91% of the vote and was the first elected to Council.

A profoundly Aussie epitomy of freedom, democracy and civilised humanity which I established this blog to champion.
As for the nation around him:
FREEDOM OF SPEECH ????? ………….. REST IN PEACE ?????
