Fiona Patten changed from being a boss of the Australian adult trade group Eros, to serving as an MP in Victoria representing
the Australian Sex Party.
She has made a good impression with liberal measures including proposing a parliamentary inquiry into voluntary assisted dying, introducing a bill creating safe access zones around clinics that provided abortion , and introducing a bill to
legalise and regulate ride-sharing companies such as Uber.
However she now feels that the she could achieve even more without the Sex Party tag, which was proving a little offputting to some potential supporters. So the party had a bit of think and came up with the Australian Reason Party.
The renamed party is now awaiting registration with the Australian Electoral Commission. On its website, Reason announces itself as a movement for radical common sense.
