Outspoken, unexpected and refreshingly honest - this is the vivid description of (temporarily) former Tasmania Senator Jacqui Lambie.

Jacqui Lambie has from the outset stood out from the mainstream of Australian politicians.  During her time in Parliament she was the most authentic, heartfelt and unscripted voice in the Senate.  She’s been a tireless and highly effective campaigner for the things that she passionately believes in, such as a better deal for our military veterans and a better system of care for those affected by the scourge of ice addiction.  These are real issues for her, things she’s lived through and not just hot-button issues raised by focus groups.

For anyone who knows Jacqui, her late 2017 resignation from the Senate due to the forgotten impact of her Dad being born in Scotland is just an interruption in her unique career representing those who’ve previously had little access to the corridors of power: veterans, single mums, welfare recipients, families of ice addicts.

Turning to being an author, Jacqui’s acclaimed 2018 autobiography “Rebel With a Cause” is not a political book.  In fact, politics barely gets a mention until the final chapters.  It’s the story of her life as an ordinary working class girl from Tasmania, and her journey through the army, her enforced medical retirement after 10 years following back injury, medical discharge, her fight to get adequate treatment and compensation from the DVA, battles with addiction and depression, struggle to raise two kids as a single mother.

In late 2018, Jacqui stunned Australians by heading off to the Syrian Civil War with SBS for Go Back Live, complete with flak jacket and helmet in searing heat, facing down ISIS on the battlefield.  She topped that off with a stint in the jungle with I’m a Celebrity, where she went way outside the brief and was badly hurt in a challenge but soldiered on in true style, winning the competition and many more hearts and minds.  She’s a gutsy unit!

It’s safe to say that there’s never, ever been a politician like Jacqui in Australia - and that’s why we need her back, working for every Tasmanian, every day.
