They mislead and deceive, the real point of the voice to parliament.

Anthony Albanese's recent statement on ABC's Insiders, where he expressed his intention to abandon the Voice to Parliament debate, carries significant weight, and warrants scrutiny for our prime minister.

"If Australians vote No, I don't believe it would be appropriate to then go and say, 'Oh, well, you've had your say but we're going to legislate anyway,'" Mr. Albanese articulated. "What we will do is respect the outcome of the referendum."

Voice to parliament: Anthony Albanese's announcement explained

"If Australians vote No, I don't believe it would be appropriate to then go and say, 'Oh, well, you've had your say but we're going to legislate anyway,'" Mr. Albanese articulated. "What we will do is respect the outcome of the referendum."

This marks a significant shift, as the Prime Minister finally seems to be listening to most Australians who never supported this referendum in the first place. Credit is due for this change in perspective.

Let's be absolutely clear: from the moment an Albanese-Labor Government was elected on May 21, 2022, the Voice to Parliament referendum had little to do with Aboriginal Australians and everything to do with potentially altering the Australian Constitution in a vague manner.

The ultimate, radical goal of Voice proponents, including the Labor caucus and senior Labor leaders, was to test if the Australian people would be willing to sign a blank check for constitutional reform.

This explains why Mr. Albanese and his government could have initiated legislation for the Voice to Parliament right from the start but insisted that it must be enshrined in the Constitution.

It also explains why there have been no concrete details provided by the Commonwealth on how the Voice would operate, how its representatives would be chosen, or how they would be compensated.

Furthermore, the ongoing refusal of Linda Burney to engage in a comprehensive debate with Jacinta Price, a discussion that could have shed light on the truth behind this issue, is perplexing.

As a result, the most remote Aboriginal Australian communities, who should have been the central focus of this debate, remain entirely uninformed about what the Voice actually entails.

It's crucial for Australians to connect the dots. The genuine compassion that people have for their Aboriginal compatriots, all of whom desire the best practical outcomes, has been manipulated, and the people themselves have been misled.

The compassion that innocent-minded people have for Aboriginal countrymen – who everyone wants the best practical outcomes for – has been weaponised, and those people themselves deceived.

We should be angry – and that should not be directed towards each other but towards those who orchestrated this mess.

This was an experiment, and the Australian people were the rats.

Now, with that experiment in tatters, the Prime Minister presides over a country he has bitterly divided.

Im a Nunga man, South Aus. In blackfulla culture, we don’t conduct ourselves in the same way this referendum has been pushed. We take time, we listen until everyone has spoken and we rely on our elders to guide us and determine our path forward for us. So I’ve been very skeptical of this process on our behalf.

We should already have a natiinal body where we determine a path together. All mobs together. Separate from government. Let us decide first what we come to you with.

We are such a diverse people, how can only 25 people speak for all of us? The voice like this wasn’t going to work. There’s 250 mobs across 13 collective groups I.e. Koori, Murri, Noongar, Nunga.

I worry that Albanese is using our one free ticket on our behalf, our one chance when the Australian public will grant us a wish and then nothing after that. Not change the date, anthem or flag. We’re not pushing for constitutional recognition. The left is pushing this, in our name. Why? I don’t know, white guilt maybe? Frustration or virtue signalling. Neither of these are helpful for us now. And these people are never there when we need them like stopping black deaths in custody.

We have always and will continue to fight for a treaty and rightful reclamation of lands, sovereign from Australia, to practice our rites and lore. I don’t know if Australia can provide us with a treaty, perhaps this excludes Australia entirely and comes from the crown. Wont that piss everyone off.
Good way to become a Republic.
