There is nothing to celebrate about the weekend’s referendum result.
My party campaigned in the March election on a colour-blind platform, so obviously I voted ‘No’ … but the whole thing is a tragedy.
Prior to the weekend, the Labor Party had proposed 25 referendums since federation. 24 failed.
With that abysmal track record, the federal Labor government foolishly decided to have another go on a racially charged issue.
