Is there a good reason we haven’t become a State of Australia?
If we did we’d get equal representation in the HoR and Senate and also prevent the Federal Government from flipping our laws as they see fit.
The NT have already taken (apart from the failed referendum) big steps down this path. Why can’t we?
I’ve set up a facebook group (“Statehood for Canberra”) with the idea that with enough discussion, pushing, nagging we might see it happen by 2020.
