    That was a patronizing poster. It did not reflect like for like, maybe in the bourgeoise minds that were behind the campaign, but not in the minds of the greater public, especially the working class.

    good poster

  3. Troy Says:

    Much effect it had though. Working class and every class voted hugely YES.

    It was an emotive argument in a debate where a loophole was being used to gain citizenship.

    And that was the kernel of it. Reduced to facts it was impossible to beat the proposition and I suppose unsurprising it won through. Trying to equate a vote to close a legal loophole with racism would never work.

    And it didnt work.
