The Voice To Parliament Handbook

The Voice To Parliament Handbook

All the detail you need

Thomas Mayo and Kerry O’Brien
Hardie Grant

Opponents to the Voice to Parliament have resorted to trying to make the issue more confusing, flooding the media with the nebulous ‘if you don’t know, vote no’ catchphrase.

Campaigner and unionist Thomas Mayo (pictured above) and veteran journalist Kerry O’Brien blow this argument out of the water with this simple guide to what a Yes vote will bring; a simple advisory body that will try to steer policy to better serve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The book points out this is not a left-right issue and the Uluru Statement came out under a Liberal National Government. Indeed, some of the highest profile Yes supporters, such as former Liberal MP Pat Farmer (pictured above) come from the conservative side of the political divide.

Simple and well-priced, the handbook is a great tool for anyone eager for an offset to the paranoid scaremongering from the No camp.
