Sorry mate but ‘a shot’ isn’t good enough. You want to amend the nations constitution to enshrine an unknown entity that you cannot explain with any clarity or evidence, or provide any proof of how it will supposedly “fix” broken indigenous disadvantage.
I love (hate) this ‘give it a shot’ laissez-faire attitude, especially from some people including journalists and politicians, because they think it’s the right fuzzy thing to do. That’s what’s driving people away from a yes vote, it’s not that simple and it won’t fix the problems being highlighted.
A total restructuring of all services provided to aboriginal people especially in rural areas is what is really really really needed. Where have all the Billions of Dollars gone? We drastically need an accounting and audit of where the money is going to.
One thing that “yes“ voters can’t answer is this: what will the Voice do for the Aboriginal community in terms of health, housing, education and schooling, crime and the safety of women and children, that cannot be done now and immediately by the current government?
Answer: Absolutely nothing. Everything can be achieved now without stuffing up our constitution and dividing and ruining this great country.
