'Yes' campaign

My Exclusive Interview with the ‘Yes’ Campaign

25 September 2023

1.4 MINS

All your questions answered.

Me: Isn’t the Indigenous Voice to Parliament racist?

You: Here’s Shaquille O’Neal

Me: But seriously, I don’t understand how giving a small group of people extra powers in the constitution because of their skin colour is not racist.

You: Here’s the PM and the Teals posing for photos with “Yes” written on their hands

Me: Ok. So you’re ignoring my point about inserting race into the constitution. Tell me this then. How will members of the Voice be appointed? I mean, won’t we just end up with a bunch of Indigenous elites sitting in Canberra on the taxpayer teat?

You: Here’s Paul Kelly

Me: You’re not answering my questions.

You: Here’s Tom Gleeson

Tom Gleeson yes

Me: Seriously? Tom Gleeson?

You: Fine. Here’s a Qantas plane with ‘Yes’ painted on the tail.

Me: What will the Voice cost taxpayers annually?

You: Here’s Cathy Freeman

Me: How will the Voice make a difference when $30 billion a year to Indigenous organisations hasn’t?

You: Here’s Michael Long walking from Melbourne to Canberra

Me: Isn’t the Voice just a first step to treaty? And won’t that cost millions and millions of dollars?

You: Here’s Jonathan Thurston

Me: Constitutional amendments become lawyers’ picnics. Won’t the Voice end up having a whole lot of decisions challenged in the High Court?

You: Here’s Adam Goodes

Me: Seriously. If the Voice is consistently ignored and whether this may lead to a legal challenge.

You: Here’s Cate Blanchett

Me: Will the Treasurer be expected to brief the Voice on what’s included in an upcoming budget?

You: Here’s Evonne Goolagong-Cawley and Ash Barty

Me: It seems like you’re relying entirely on emotion and celebrity endorsements to sell this thing.

You: Here’s John Farnham

Me: It’ll take more to convince me to change the constitution than a John Farnham song.

You: Here’s MC Hammer

Me: It’s a big ‘No’ from me.

    Very witty. I love it , but, the sad thing is that “The Voice ” proposal has done a lot of harm—abuse , threats and divided the community . The sooner it’s over and dead , the better !
