Letter to The Editor - The best road to a strongly united nation
To The Age That some "Coalition and Labor MPs have backed an Indigenous 'Voice to Parliament'" ("Indigenous Voice wins MP backing", 30/11) does not mean that such a move, involving constitutional entrenchment, is in Australia's best interests or will ever win support in a referendum. Constitutionally, all Australians, no matter what their ethnic background, should be regarded as being on the same footing. That is the best road to a strongly united nation that will enjoy continued stability and security. The welfare of disadvantaged Australians, indigenous and non-indigenous, can be attended to sensibly and efficiently without any dangerous tampering with the constitution.
