“In 1933, Western Australia voted in a referendum to leave the Australian Federation, with a majority of two to one in favour of secession. However, an election held shortly before the referendum had turned out the incumbent “pro-independence” government, replacing it with a government which did not support the independence movement. Respecting the result of the referendum, the new government nonetheless petitioned the Agent General of the United Kingdom for independence, where the request was simply ignored.”
Call me obvious but I’m pretty sure that’s not a yes or a no, in fact I’m pretty sure the population had spoken and that by our own right the country of Western Australia should exist?.
What do you think?
