Tony Abbott appears to be living proof that a “Voice to Parliament” isn’t necessarily going to be listened to by Parliament. He already has a citizen’s voice recognized by our constitution and no longer represents any special group of people that deserve a privileged place. He simply is a son of the invaders of this land that overran the first peoples here. He seems to believe he represents that privileged group and that they deserve to retain a special place in this country.
Former prime minister Tony Abbott has accused Labor MPs of gagging figures who are sceptical of this year’s referendum after he was blocked from appearing at a key parliamentary inquiry into the proposed Indigenous Voice to parliament.
