There is a Hidden Agenda

The failed cultural heritage laws of Western Australia provide a guide to how the Voice might work and what will be their primary motivation.

There is a Hidden Agenda

That might really be a pig you see flying by.

Incredible as it may seem, a political leader has actually admitted they made a big mistake and have made moves to fix it.

The politician in question is Western Australia (WA) Premier Roger Cook, who has now accepted his terrible Aboriginal Cultural Heritage laws:

"went too far, were too prescriptive, too complicated and placed unnecessary burdens on everyday Western Australian property owners".

Unsurprisingly, his assessment, while correct, significantly downplays just how poor the decision to allow Aboriginal culture to reign over personal property-rights has been.

While some will disagree, in my opinion, the WA laws were a micro-trial of what could happen across the country if The Voice referendum succeeds.

The big difference being that the WA legislative folly can be repealed but we'd have little chance of rescinding a constitutional change.

That's exactly why the Federal government want the Constitution changed prior to any legislative being introduced. They are clearly afraid of people knowing just what they plan to inflict upon Australia.

While the WA laws only applied to land owners, a constitutionally enshrined Voice would be able to stick its nose into every aspect of Australian life.

That's because every decision of parliament impacts the the people of Australia. Of course that includes the Aboriginal population.

Hence no policy will be off limits to this body of Aboriginal elites, who may pick and choose what they make 'representations' on. And the Prime Minister reminded us that it would be a very brave government that ignored the demands of The Voice.

Given courage is in such short-supply in politics, The Voice will likely get whatever they want.

If it's anything like the WA laws, most of the representations will involve money.

In the West, a volunteer tree planting day was stopped by the local tribesmen who demanded $2.5 million in funding from the government. One of the organisers of the planting said:

When you have the CEO of the Whadjuk Aboriginal Corporation making a demand like this, you don't just sort of put the phone down and ignore it."

The Corporation insists the demand was unsanctioned but it does illustrates how a positive community can be hijacked and used as a tool of blackmail.

Other consequences of the WA legislation included anyone with land in excess of 1100 square metres having to pay for a land-survey prior to disrupting the soil more than 50 centimetres deep.

For those with a large block, just planting a tree could require a 'survey' costing tens of thousands of dollars - or they'd risk a huge fine.

If they were some of the outcomes of a supposedly benign state law, imagine what could happen under the stewardship of an entitled and powerful group of Federal Aboriginal overlords.

Of course it would be possible for the Federal government to introduce the legislation surrounding their Voice proposal without holding a referendum.

The fact that they have chosen not to suggests they have a lot to hide and that constitutional change is a necessary step for an agenda they don't want you to know about.
