Letter to The Editor - He claims that there is "a ten per cent rusted on group of Australians who will never support recognition in any form."

To The Australian         If the government plans to hold a referendum on constitutional recognition of our Aboriginal people ("Wyatt sets deadline for vote to recognise", 30/1), then it must ensure that the No case is given equal support to the Yes case. Remarks by Ken Wyatt do not encourage the hope that such fair play will occur. He claims that there is "a ten per cent rusted on group of Australians who will never support recognition in any form." That term, "rusted on", is an unjustified insult. Moreover, Wyatt obtains his figure from a partisan source (Reconciliation Australia). The real number of those implacably opposed to a foolish and divisive campaign is likely to be much higher and threatens the failure of any referendum.
