Since that time Craig has had two retail computer businesses, been a truck driver, worked in the motorcycle industry and has now completed a commercial cooking course in the hopes of one day creating his own signature dish.  Craig dabbles with writing and dreams of one day being published.  Craig says "Australia today is a shadow of it former self, with many international laws now controlling our way of life to the economic woes many of us struggle with everyday. I believe in our Common Law, our Constitution and the Aussie way of life.  I would like to see the average Australian get a fairer deal economically and a louder voice in Parliament, a transparent Government were Australians come first and foremost." He is a believer in banking reform and in big business paying their fair share of tax, and giving the battlers the tax cuts instead.  Craig has a serious interest in how our country is being run and will be a strong leader for the Division of Bruce.
