Two candidates confirmed for Flinders electorate

Paul Madigan and Denis McCormack have been confirmed by the Australian Electoral Commission as Independent candidates for the seat of Flinders in the coming federal election.

Their aims are to:

  • promote the need to reduce Australia’s current high immigration levels, and
  • encourage all voters to write REDUCE IMMIGRATION in blank spaces at the top of both ballot papers, after numbering all boxes as they wish.

Paul Madigan (66), farmer, singer-songwriter and broadcaster, has spoken publicly against high immigration, both on radio and through previous electoral candidacies. He stood for Australians Against Further Immigration in 1996 and as an Independent in 2004. He has lived on French Island in the heart of the Flinders electorate for over a decade. He is a former President of the French Island Community Association. Madigan’s in Brunswick was a successful venue for all sorts of innovative artists during the 1990s.

Denis McComack (59) is a researcher and analyst of immigration issues. His writings have appeared in many publications, both in Australia and internationally. He was a co-founder and electoral candidate for Australians Against Further Immigration (1990-1997) and for Graeme Campbell’s Australia First Party (1998). Since 1992 Denis has been the Australian correspondent for The Social Contract, an American quarterly journal which covers population, immigration, environment/carrying capacity and multicultural issues. He was an adviser to Graeme Campbell MP, independent member for Kalgoorlie, from 1994 to 1998.

Madigan and McCormack extend grateful thanks to the many electors in Flinders who have helped by nominating them as candidates. 

Both men aim to attend all “Meet the Candidates” evenings in the Flinders electorate. Meetings are being planned for Hastings on Tuesday 27 August, Cowes on Friday 30 August and Dromana on Monday 2 September.

They can also be contacted directly by email ( or by telephone:
