Yeah, good question. It's about choice, I think. So, I've been interested in the way the country's run for a long time, you know, taken an interest in politics and the decisions made by government and I came to a conclusion a while ago that there was nobody offering a choice that I wanted. So there was nobody actually speaking for me, offering a future that I wanted to see. And I think that's the case for a lot of people.

You know, you see a lot of discussion on social media and people saying "This is wrong", "That's wrong", all these things. But you don't necessarily see a lot of solutions and you don't see people engaging further. So I thought "Well, democracy is a good thing, it's the best system we have, certainly. But, it only works if you participate", so if there isn't an option that you actually want, what you really need to do is you need to provide that option. So that's really... that's the idea.
