Chicken before the egg? Or egg before the chicken?
In June 2021 we went with the chicken (proposed political party) rather than the egg (proposed political policies). By September we realised that if we purport to advocate Common Sense, we should also practice it: None of our members has ever heard a chicken say ‘I came before my own egg’ (not once). So, Common Sense for Australia is now ‘producing’ (ie our policy eggs). We hope you will find at least some to your taste. We don’t expect you will find we deliver bad eggs. Be prepared though, for some egg-views that run counter to long-accepted wisdom and shibboleths, of any old political party you favour.
