The arguments really haven't changed. All that has happened is that the need has increased.
When this sheet was prepared, New England was still bigger than WA. Since then, we have just gone backwards.
At the time of the 1967 referendum, those opposed argued that continued membership of NSW would solve our problems.
If only that had proved to be true. It has not.
You see, even if self-government had not given the benefits we hoped, we would at least have been part responsible for our own destiny.
It is hard for those of us who fought then, and have seen the decline since, to accept the simple re-cycling of the type of anti-argument we saw then and again see today.
The anti case has simply failed. Time to let the pro case have a go.
