Reith on Track
Letter to the Editor:
Glenn Milne reports that Peter Reith's endorsement of the elected president option that opinion polls show is the preference of a strong majority of Australians, is "marginalising" him (Champion of the Mack model, Opinion 15/2).
Does that mean a majority of the Australian electorate is marginalised as well? Apparently so. What a comment on the debate on the republic! As Reith led the battle against the 1988 referendums---which included the three most rejected constitutional referendum questions in Australian history---I know whose track record on these matters I would be inclined to trust.
