To The Australian Australians should be wary of the way in which its new government is handling the question of "constitutional" recognition of our so-called "indigenous people" ("Time is right for indigenous voice to be heard in houses of parliament", 28/5). George Williams states that "the Uluru Statement has built considerable momentum". It also has the capacity to fatally divide the political order of this currently unified and united nation. The claim that polls show that "more than sixty per cent of Australians back the idea" is questionable. Polls are on the nose at the moment. In moving towards a planned referendum on the "voice to Parliament", the PM must ensure that fair publicity and funding is provided for the "no" case.
