Bernardi LargeIs Cory Bernardi about to launch his own political party?

The Australian has reported that a company linked to the outspoken senator’s wife has applied to register a series of trademarks for the name ‘The Australian Conservatives’.

Yesterday Senator Bernardi described the project as an extension of his existing Conservative Leadership Foundation but did rule out leaving the Liberal party according to The Australian.

Back in September the right-wing politician warned the Prime Minister there would be  a schism in the Liberal party if he failed to uphold “conservative values”.

Last week the senator reportedly sent an email to his supporters where he repetitively used the phrase “silent majority of Australian Conservatives” who were challenging “the leftist agenda of big government and decaying society”.

The senator has recently highlighted the rise of Donald Trump in the US Republican party as an example of the rise of conservatism.

Senator Bernardi is not due to face re-election until 2019 but if a double dissolution election is called for July 2nd he will go to the polls three years earlier than expected.

While Senator Bernardi has moved to trademark the name The Australian Conservatives’, the name ‘The Australian Conservative Party’ is already being used by an aspiring politician in NSW, although it is not officially registered as a political party.

Peter Wallace, a former policeman, drew attention this week when he posted to social media his concerns about the Safe Schools Coalition anti-bullying program.

“Safe Schools—I put it to you that your real agenda is to convert straight kids to be gay kids.” Mr Wallace wrote.

On his page the aspiring politicians said he planned to run for the senate in the next election. His suggestion that young Australians could be taught to be gay was widely mocked on the social media platform Twitter.

In a tweet earlier today Mr Wallace said he was aware Senator Bernardi was registering a similar name.

  1. It would be so much more convenient if all the right-wing bigots (Cori, Eric, George et al) were in the one Con Party, so they could be put last with just one pencil stroke!

  2. Notice how the left can’t debate. They just attack anyone who defends Traditional Marriage as “bigots “and “homophobes” and try to bully people into silence. There is no doubt the Liberals have moved way over to the left under Turnbulls leadership with conservative MPs not being part of the new government with many retiring from politics altogether. For this reason it is a sensible idea for a conservative party to be created because the Liberal party don’t represent traditional conservative values anymore.

  3. why do lefties always resort to name calling when somene disagrees with them. the safe school program is presented as a cure to nully boy tactics, a lot of these lefties need to take a Liberal dose of it!!

  4. The Liberals have been infiltrated by the left for the last 40 years. They have finally managed to take over , such that the so-called Liberal party is just like Labor. It is time to ditch the traitors and start from scratch. It will be painful.

    What is interesting is that the self-appointed Liberal figurehead-Turncoat, is starting to rapidly get on the nose with the voters. To think that his popularity is sinking to lows associated with Bill Shorten! Really, Shorten is so pathetic that any other political figure who is as “popular” would have to be pretty bad. To me, it smells that the whole sabotage of Liberal and Labor is a ruse to get the Greens in power, who are actually the closest thing there are to the Nazis. What will be useful to the offshoot Conservatives is that they should get the preferences from ALA and other minor conservative parties that are springing up.

    The alternative is for conservative people, especially in NSW to join the Liberal party in droves to take back the branches from the infiltrators. Political apathy has all but destroyed the Liberal Party. It is up to us to prevent what is rapidly panning out to becoming a one party nation. This is not a good situation at all.

  5. He’ll see just how little support he actually has. He has been clinging to that rusty old barnacle ridden LNP vessel. Guy thinks he’s some kind of ‘true honourable Conservative’ – when in fact he’s just a relic from a failed economical model. The USA is in the midst of trying to clean up the mess done by his kind of political/economical model.

    If he’s ranting about the rise of Trump-Conservatism in the USA, then maybe the rest of us should rant about the success of Nordic countries who follow exactly the opposite of what his agenda is. Those countries are FAR more successful than the USA (not just a handful of bilionares and the rest in poverty).

    What young person would vote for this relic? What young person is scared of Muslims? Wants to push the Catholic agenda? Is scared of gay people? Is scared of other races?? With every year comes a new wave of voters, and the old ones die. He has no place in this era.
