I’m wondering how much it would cost to organise a speaking tour of Australian republicans who voted ‘no’ in their 1999 referendum on establishing a republic, on the grounds that it wasn’t quite the sort of republic they wanted? (The possible audience being those who are preparing to vote against AV in a referendum on the grounds it’s not the exact reform they wanted, so if it’s rejected they’ll get a pony a referendum on the exact reforms they want, in exactly the same way as the Australians didn’t.)
