Socialist Alliance’s回答： いいえ"The recent firesale of NSW’s retail electricity is a disgrace. Even worse, the government has pledged to spend $1.5 billion on a new state-owned coalmine. This, alongside $1 billion for subsidising dirty coal supplies to power stations, guarantees future corporate profits.
This sell-off comes on the back of the privatisation of the TAB, the State Bank, the Government Insurance Office (GIO), prisons and State Lotteries and attempts to privatise Sydney Ferries and more. The result is billions of dollars that would have been generated for public use is now in private hands, and prices are set to skyrocket. "Source

Socialist Alliance’s回答： はい、そしてアボリジニとトーレス海峡島民を保護する条約を組み入れます。"In the light of the grave injustices, and the significant changes required to address them, moves to simply recognise the First Peoples in the Constitution appear inadequate at best, insulting at worse.
