Here is Michael Kaff’s position on the Senate Ballot paper for Queensland


Here is a spreadsheet containing my actual position on the Senate ballot paper for Queensland voters.

When you click SENATE BALLOT MK it will come up as a file which is safe to open.

It's massive but you only have to number 12 choices below the line.

Put the number 1 for KAFF Michael - INDEPENDENT

Below the line and far right ===>>>>>>

Simply follow the yellow arrows on the spreadsheet attached.

..then number 2 to 12 for other candidates of your choice.

Michael Kaff’s Sydney Morning Herald article in weekend edition


It was great to see that my interview article is doing the rounds over the weekend. I hope that this also took place in the Brisbane Times, which relates to my electoral state of Queensland...and the Age (I couldn't find these papers).

My comments that were quoted weren't quite as I intended and were a tad jumbled with some being out of context, but overall it was good to make the big papers.

Arts workers should be angry about funding cuts – we can’t work harder for less | Culture | The Guardian


Defiance may seem heroic but running full programs with insufficient funding is a risky business. And the burden will fall on the workers

Dawn Service – Mudgeeraba, Gold Coast



Shelley and Michael13062228_10156838966005181_2492724679032996316_n13043440_10156838965890181_6925497236839549599_nMudgeeraba RSL for after service breakfast + milk and rum with Peter Castley, Michael Kaff, and Steve Boyle . — with Peter Castley, Michael Kaff and Steve Boyle (RSL President - Robina & Mudgeeraba)

A great honour to attend the dawn service at Mudgeeraba on Monday 25th April 2016 with Shelley Lynn Dane Garrod. We had an "interesting" breakfast of sausage, mashed potato, baked beans, buttered bread and coffee...closely followed by Rum and milk. Not my usual beverage at 6.30am I must say. They certainly looked after us. We sat, ate and spoke with Marg (Last name unknown) and Peter who generously offered us seats. All morning we mixed with ex-servicemen and women who were full of humour and fun stories. Being an ex-army reserve officer who has never served in combat, I am in awe of these amazingly brave souls who risked their lives for the freedom that we all take for granted and enjoy today. Great to see so many young people there as well.

The march through Mudgeeraba will be at 3.30pm.

Welcome – Thank you for visiting.



I’m Michael Kaff and I am an independent candidate for the Federal Senate, on behalf of Queensland, in the next Federal Election.

This site is here to inform you about why I am standing as a candidate for the Federal Senate on behalf of Queenslanders and to provide readers with an outline of my views on issues of significance.

I hope that if you have any comments, ideas or questions you will use this site to alert me to them. Please be assured, I AM LISTENING.

I want to contribute to the Senate remaining a strong house of review so that whoever is in government cannot ignore the wishes of ordinary Australians.

I believe that I can be a strong voice for ordinary Australians and pledge integrity and transparency to you.  Please consider me when you make your vote.
