Thank you, Wayne
Yesterday, a great Labor hero, Wayne Swan announced his retirement from federal politics. Graduating from UQ in 1976, he has been an inspiring and supportive mentor for the UQ ALP Club. He has attended a number of the clubs events including market days, policy night and our Annual Forgan Smith lecture.
His actions as treasurer during the GFC saved Australia from the horrible depths of recession which many other countries fell into. Even recently, he has fought for economic equality and preventing Australia from falling into economic chaos.
The UQ ALP Club would like to thank Wayne for all his support and for being such an inspiring mentor for the club. We wish Wayne all the best with his future endeavours.
