New member of the Australian senate gives knockout libertarian speech
Posted on Jul 12, 2014
Senator David Leyonhjelm
The presentation by David Leyonhjelm to the Australian senate on July 9 is a great libertarian speech by any standard.
But the fact that he gave it as an elected member of the body marks another landmark in the worldwide expansion of the Libertarian Party and its allies.
David Leyonhjelm was elected to the Australian (federal) senate September 2013 and took office on July 1, 2014. He is one of twelve senators representing the state of New South Wales, the most populous of Australia’s six states.
