Victorian Liberal Party backbencher Russell Broadbent hands in his resignation after failing to secure pre-selection for his long-held seat of Monash at the weekend. After losing the pre-selection, Broadbent chooses to move to the cross-bench.
As a key member of the Victorian Liberal Party, Broadbent has been known for his vocal opposition to various government policies over the years. In 2006, he openly critiqued the offshore processing policy for refugees, and in 2017, he voted against same-sex marriage legislation along with three other MPs. His most recent stance was regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, where he criticized mandatory vaccinations and promoted the use of ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug, as a cure.
Since losing the pre-selection, Broadbent put forward his resignation from the Liberal Party, prompting him to shift to the cross-bench in a bid to continue his political journey. His decision to resign raised discussions about the ongoing limitations and the distinct lack of criticism towards the Covid-19 regime within the Liberal and Labor parties.
There has been a stark lack of change, according to Broadbent, when it comes to disapproval of the Covid-19 regime. He expressed concerns about the substantial influence of pharmaceutical companies, notably Pfizer, which has led to the widespread signing and approval of their vaccines. Broadbent also suggested that more than 30,000 excess deaths across Australia were caused by the experimental gene-altering vaccines, a claim that has sparked controversy and debate.
Moreover, Broadbent questioned the reported 91 percent national vaccination rate and warned about an expected rise in deaths over the next few years, despite the high vaccination rate. This has fueled concerns and criticisms of the current Covid vaccination effort and its potential long-term effects.
In a move that echoes Broadbent’s opposition to the established Covid-19 regime, fellow Liberal senator Gerrard Rennick joined the fray, openly challenging the practices of Big Pharma in the Senate. Rennick raised serious doubts about mRNA vaccines and the alarming increase in adverse reactions and deaths. However, his stance resulted in an unfavorable position on the Liberal’s senate ticket, ultimately leaving him at a disadvantage.
Consequently, Broadbent and Rennick’s actions have resonated with like-minded individuals and have sparked crucial conversations about the current state of Covid-19 vaccination policies and their potential impact. Concerns have been raised about the health system’s capacity to handle the rising number of critical cases and the impact of vaccinations on public health.
As both individuals pave their paths outside the Liberal Party, they signal a heightened emphasis on questioning the established norms and policies related to public health, Covid-19 vaccines, and pharmaceutical company influence. Their actions and outspoken stances have garnered attention and will likely continue to fuel discussions and debates about the contentious issues surrounding Covid-19 vaccines and their impact.
