In a recent news article written by Senator Jacinta Price, it was discussed how Prime Minister Albanese’s true priority lies in building his own legacy rather than actually helping Aboriginal Australians. This was evident in his actions regarding the divisive Voice and the full Uluru Statement.
According to Senator Price, last week the Prime Minister denied that the Voice is the gateway to a Treaty. This week, he is also denying the truth about the full Uluru Statement. While most people are familiar with the one-page summary of the Uluru Statement that has been circulated, there is actually a 26-page full statement that reveals the true agenda. Senator Price suggests that the reason the Prime Minister doesn’t want the public to know about the longer statement is because it explains the real agenda, which includes reparations, compensation, grievance-based history, and potentially changing our system of government.
The full document outlines that a potential treaty could involve seeking a financial settlement such as a percentage of GDP. These details are concerning to Senator Price, who believes that the Prime Minister is hiding the truth in order to build his own legacy, potentially following in the footsteps of Bob Hawke.
However, Senator Price argues that if the Prime Minister truly wants to leave a lasting legacy, he should focus on addressing the problems within Indigenous communities. One specific issue she raised is the lack of transparency surrounding Aboriginal Land Councils. Senator Price had proposed a Senate inquiry into these councils in order to gain a better understanding of their operations, accountability, and whether they are delivering real benefits. Despite her efforts, the Prime Minister’s government pushed back the Senate motion. Nonetheless, Senator Price is determined to garner support from the crossbench to proceed with the inquiry.
Senator Price emphasizes the importance of working together to face problems head-on and make necessary adjustments to better support Indigenous communities. She believes that addressing these challenges should be the Prime Minister’s main focus, rather than being caught up in divisive and damaging deception.
Overall, this news article by Senator Jacinta Price highlights the Prime Minister’s apparent disregard for the true needs of Aboriginal Australians, as well as his prioritization of personal legacy-building over actual solutions. By shedding light on these issues, Senator Price aims to encourage a greater focus on addressing the problems faced by Indigenous communities and ensuring transparency within Aboriginal Land Councils.
