POPULATION is a volcano issue with the potential to explode in the final weeks of the coming federal election campaign, according to a party that wants to reach the 70% of voters who reject the “Big Australia” policies of the major parties.

It’s an issue Dick Smith has done documentaries on to highlight and which has drawn Bindy Irwin out of the comfort zone of animal world stardom to bring attention to and invite criticism of her.

According to Stable Population Party national director William Bourke, rapid population growth and the failure to stabilise it are the underlying issues behind all major problems around cost of living and increasingly costly finite resources like land, energy and water and the key cause of escalating environmental degradation.

Mr Bourke said it was time for Australians to think “better” rather than “bigger”.

Although the issue had failed to gain traction in the national media, polling shows 38% of Australians would consider voting for the party’s Senate candidates in every state and territory and the 10 House of Representative candidates it will field.

The result is double that achieved by Julian Assange’s Wikileaks Party, Clive Palmer’s PUP or Bob Katter’s KAP.
