AUSTRALIANS AREN'T EQUAL "ACT AND NT VOTERS DON'T COUNT"

The press in Australia has once again grabbed a Headline that was not there.

Senator Bob Brown of the Greens has agreed to put a private members bill to parliament asking it to revoke a previous ruling that disallowed the parliaments of the ACT and the Northern Territory from having equal voting rights.

Any legislation agreed in either of these parliaments can be over ruled, unlike all the other states who can not be over ruled.

Therefore we the voters are unequal, the whole point of Senator Brown's bill is to correct this situation.

The press however are trying to make this bill about euthanasia, because it grabs headlines, that is not what this bill is about.
It's about giving those who live in these territories equal rights with their vote.

The headline grabbing press will ruin any chance of us getting this through parliament.

GIVE US VOTING RIGHTS LIKE OTHER AUSTRALIANS
