Rose Tattoo Singer, Angry Anderson Reveals Political Ambitions

According to Dailytelegraph.com.au, Rose Tattoo singer Angry Anderson is angry about the carbon tax and has joined the National Party of Australia with the intention of running for a seat at the next federal election.

"If between the party and I, we can agree, I feel I can best serve the Australian people on the national stage," the 63-year-old rock singer told The Sunday Telegraph.

"I've always liked big stages. We're in discussions at the moment - listen to me, all of a sudden I sound like a politician" he laughs.

The former Labor supporter said he chose the Nationals because he didn't feel that he would be free enough to express his opinions in either of the major parties.

"I am a lapsed Labor supporter," Anderson said.

"I have over the last 10 to 15 years drifted towards the conservative side of politics. I've said before I don't want to be silenced by a major party."

The Rose Tattoo frontman said being drawn into politics was a natural extension of his community service work.

"You can reach a stage like I have where you've done as much as you can in your profession in my case music and a political career becomes an extension of the community work I'm doing," he said.
