The Voice to Parliament referendum results are in and it is a resounding victory for the ‘No’ campaign which won the national vote 60.25 per cent to 39.75 per cent, with all 6 states voting ‘No’ along with the Northern Territory. Only Canberra voted ‘Yes’.
The ‘Yes’ campaign had a large amount of money, an army of volunteers that swamped the ‘No’ campaign, and celebrity endorsements such as Panthers star Nathan Cleary and even MC Hammer.
They had the support of universities and public institutions like mine (the University of Sydney), where the ‘No’ vote was not even mentioned.
