Response to Communism in AustraliaIn the response to communism within Australia, Prime Minister Robert Menzies announced a national referendum to ban the communist party. Prime Minister Menzies ask the people of Australia to vote yes or no to whether the Federal Government should gain the power to ban the communist party or not. It took place in 1951 and was seen as a bit of an unfair vote and the referendum was defeated with the majority of people in Australia voting no as it won only a majority in three states.

Australia is a fantastic place to live. Whilst the country does, of course, have its problems, these are minimal by comparison to some regions of the world. Compared to many parts of the world, pollution is low even in the cities, and certainly the air is clean and fresh a short distance from any city centre. Most cities have areas of bushland for people to picnic in and enjoy the wildlife. The beaches are excellent, and there are areas where the surfing is great and other areas where the beach is calm and safe for young children. Our water is clean and of very high quality, and fresh fruit and vegetables are readily available everywhere.
Further inland, the country is a paradise for anyone who likes a bit of privacy. There are vast, open spaces of the bush and the outback which are populated by little more than native animals, and many people enjoy camping in these remote areas. The weather varies depending on the region. Some areas are hot and humid; others can be cold and snowy in winter.
No. The government in Australia at present is Labor, democratically elected by the Australian people in 2007.
