Australian Labour Party Minister, Bill Shorten, brought the crowd to its feet repeatedly throughout a passionate and inspirational 30 minute address to 2100 NDP delegates assembled for the biennial Party Policy Convention

A magnificent speaker, he gave a thought provoking and inspiring speech, likening our countries, and our common struggles toward more fair, equitable and progressive societies with equal opportunity for the basics of life as well as advancement.

He spoke eloquently and really was the standout speaker - it was well worth hosting him, and we are very grateful he came.

I wonder how he is perceived in Oz?
