Prime Minister Gillard has announced a referendum’s coming on constitutional recognition of local government.
We are asking the Australian people to support a small but important change to our Constitution so that the existing practice of Federal Government support for local communities is formally recognised in our Constitution.
This will make it easier for the Federales to ignore pissant state governments when rolling out policy programs.
But what about here in the ACT where we have no councils.
Would you like a council? Ideally without formal parties and just part time?
