The town Loxton in South Australia was founded by my fathers clan I descend from two kings palpramudramudra and nirripi , plus thiapilthringuda tribe kings from barrihoola on the kinnipappa or Coopers creek Queensland all the way down to the sand hills of coongi lakes as it is called today in South Australia this would be over a million square acres of land and waters.

Leslie loves working with young Australians and a 'fair go' protecting the young ones.
"Steak on the plate mate" "not pie in the sky" Leslie is a practical "hands on person".
Leslie Joined Rise up Australia because he believes in putting Australia first.
No new laws in Australia, Shariah law is for those that want to be in bondage from over seas in other countries,(especially the Middle east) states Leslie. We have westminster common law which encompasses indigenous law as well , so we can not have another law such as Shariah law that not only perverts our Australian law and also destroys sovereign God given rights of people, by freely murdering, raping and rioting destruction of properties and innocent people who appose this ideology , it (fundamental Islam) has no place in Australia.
The respect indigenous peoples law and customs(in harmony with Commonwealth law) is the Australian way of life, and if immigrants don't like it, or don't assimilate,or don't wish to fit in under these 'laws of Australia' then I suggest they don't come to Australia, we do not need any outside ethnic community disrespecting the laws of Australia as we are one nation under one Flag and one constitution.
Leslie Harris I have know for over 25 years
and I have met his full blood Aboriginal relations (Uncle jack) and I have know Leslie's mother
Shirley for 25 years as well .
Leslie has the 'God given ability' to bridge 'the Gap' between indigenous First nations people and mainstream Australians, he is an excellent bushman and leaned a lot from his indigenous heritage.
Myself and Leslie have had many conversations on how to make a better Australia with
'all Australian Citizens' under one banner.
There is a 'rich Aboriginal culture' that can benefit all Australians and with more First nations peoples being represented in the Senate, Rise Up Australia Party believes in a Cultural representative balance in the governance of Australia.
Leslie Harris is also a 'big vision' person who believes the way to empower all Australians is by creating small community based business, lower taxes, and create some big infrastructure programs like the Bradfield Irrigation scheme, of course this done in harmony with the indigenous peoples so
that everybody benefits and there is respect to the land and the
'God appointed guardians of this land 'the Aboriginal Peoples
TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AUSTRALIA GREAT AGAIN
