Letter to The Editor - Wrongfully favour "indigenous" Australians at the expense of the great majority of others
To The Australian The PM needs to be told that the Coalition will continue to leak votes at the next election if it does not resolutely oppose separatist campaigns on behalf of our so-called "indigenous" people ("PM told constitutional 'voice' must be priority", 27/9). Ordinary Australians are not convinced at all by the claims of some campaigners that a constitutionally entrenched "voice" would not intrude on parliamentary sovereignty. The citing of other campaigners (Mark Leibler, Anne Twomey and George Williams) in support does nothing to assuage the legitimate doubts of the rest of us. In the further future, after the ALP under Bill Shorten has been defeated, the Coalition needs to wind back some of the policies already in play that wrongfully favour "indigenous" Australians at the expense of the great majority of others. Has Scott Morrison got the ticker?
