Organised opposition

News Weekly, November 29, 2003
Sir,

Canberra Observed (News Weekly, November 1) is spot-on in querying the need for Senate reform.

After all, if Federal Labor win the next election we could end up with every Government in Australia in the ALP hands.

The protection of the senate, in such a case, becomes imperative.

However, the column is wrong in saying that during the 1967 Nexus referendum "there was no organized" opposition.

The DLP Senators were joined by an independent Senator and a number of Liberal Senators in organizing the "No Case".

The NCC/DLP complex worked very hard in exposing the weakness in the "Yes Case", and with the help of equal public funding for both cases, the referendum was easily defeated.
