Two days to go. If you don’t know, find out.

One more time for the hard of listening. With only two days to go until the referendum it seems important to point out that if the Yes votes gets up, no one loses anything at all.

That may seem hard to believe amid the welter of disinformation and lies that are routinely spouted by the No side but it’s true. Who you going to believe? Former Supreme Court Justice Robert French who says the referendum question does not pose constitutional risk or Clive Palmer who wants you believe that recognizing the fact that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have lived here for tens of thousands of years will put up your tax.

There is a reason the No camp have rallied around the intellectually bankrupt slogan of “if you don’t know, vote no’’ and that is if people actually did know, did make an effort to find out the facts then they would vote yes.

It’s hard to remember any political campaign that has celebrated its own ignorance as the No campaign has done. Still, it’s hard to believe any political campaign has any credibility when actual Nazis turn up to support it at public events. I don’t know, but if my cause was being backed by the Nazis, I might start to think again about my thought processes.

The truth is not hard to uncover. What is being proposed is a simple model. It recognizes history and allows Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a greater say in their own future.

It does not take away any rights from any other Australian. It simply gives an opportunity for one group of Australians to have a greater say in their own future.

It seems impossible to deny the current system is broken. As mentioned last week, pick any stat you like and you will find the nation’s First People at the bottom of the list. Health, education, employment, life expectancy. It goes on.

There have been no proposals put forward by the No campaign to change any of that. They are content with the status quo.

A Yes vote won’t change that overnight, but would be a first step in a long journey to try to correct some of the nation’s past sins and give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a better chance.

If we say no, which is looking likely, where do we go from here?
