This tribute video was shown at her Thank you dinner held in the Showroom at Hornsby RSL, Hornsby NSW Australia. 'Our Judy' The member for Hornsby retires from politics after serving her electorate and the State of New Sout Wales for 9 Years. The 'Pythonesque' animated opening to many of you won't mean much as there are few 'In jokes' that with a room full of liberal pollies & supporters went over very well and full understand. There is also a little joke between Judy and I in there involving the former Transport Minister Carl Scully. BUT... when you get into the main section of this film you will get a glimpse of how hard Judy as our State representiative worked so tirelesly for the Entire 9 years. My thanks to Christine and the Hornsby Electorate Staff, The Bush Telegraph, Darren Hart Photography and Judy's succsessor, Matt Kean for all their assistance with material for this film.

UPDATE: Ever found a song that describes an awful politician perfectly? Send me a message or post it here and I may just make it happen! This video is for all the Australian progressives who are tired of Tony Abbott and his attitude of being everyone's moral superior. Over the years he has proven himself to be a zealot and a disrespectful human being with no regard for human rights, multiculturalism, equality and our unique Australian environment. So on behalf of all of Australia's progressives, we say: FUCK YOU TONY ABBOTT.
