...never stop writing

IT IS SORT of fitting that my last editorial on this website was on the day I celebrated the fifth anniversary of my organ transplant. Five years of new life.
Now, I’m putting the Human Headline editorials in mothballs as I launch into a new life in Canberra that I hope lasts more than five more years.
It doesn’t mean I will stop writing. After more than five decades in journalism and with more than a dozen books to my name, I’ll never stop writing.
But in future, you’ll find those musings on the Facebook page of the new party I founded: Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party.
And those words will be dissected, and the entrails inspected, as I take my seat as a Senator for Victoria in the 45th Parliament.
It seems my election has broken a record set 90 years ago. At 72, I am the oldest person ever elected to the Senate.
The record was held by Senator John Verran (Nationalist, SA) who was appointed in 1927 and served for one year.
I plan to do better than that.
So check me out on the Justice Party Facebook page.
As somebody once said: That’s life, goodnight.
