More information about the ‘no’ campaign for the Voice to Parliament referendum has been revealed, with organiser Warren Mundine announcing the official slogan “recognise a better way”. That references an alternative proposal to insert a symbolic recognition of Indigenous people and migrants into the constitution’s preamble. Mundine is a Bundjalung man/former Labor president/Liberal candidate – he says it’s important to recognise ”all the people” who’ve “built this great country”, noting that the suggestion has been rejected before. The ‘no’ campaign has financial support, but Mundine won’t say who from, saying they would likely be “bullied” if they come forward. Labor and the Greens are expected to support the ‘yes’ campaign. Coalition leader Peter Dutton continues to call for more details on how the Voice would work in practice. The government’s referendum working group will meet on Thursday.
