Referendum? No Dam(n) Choice!
Can I explain my dilemma? I want a Republic but if I vote 'Yes', then I am voting for a model that I don't want. If I vote 'No', then it may seem that I don't want a Republic.
No-one will know. It is clear that I have no logical choice. I therefore urge all Australians who feel like I do to boycott the Referendum and vote informal on Saturday by writing 'No Dam(n) Choice' on their ballot papers. It helped save the Franklin river and it may help save our collective conscience.
