to THE AGE
The Government has faced realities in its response to the campaign for constitutional recognition (‘Coalition rejects Indigenous “voice” to Parliament’, 27/10). The Australian people will never sign away their national unity in a referendum powered by misguided idealism.
Claims that people are not willing to listen to what ‘First Australians’ want are without foundation. No ‘First Australians’ are alive today!
