John Ruddick

John was elected to the NSW Legislative Council in 2023.

His maiden speech to parliament made international headlines when it was banned from YouTube after John questioned Australia's draconian response to Covid-19. Never before in Australian history has a politician's maiden speech to parliament been banned. 

Prior to parliament, John owned a property finance business based on Sydney’s North Shore. 

John is an avid reader, a student of history, and often contributes to Spectator Australia and Sky News Australia. In 2018 he wrote a book titled, Make the Liberal Party Great Again but joined the Liberal Democrats (Libertarian Party) during the Liberal Party’s overreaction to COVID.
