- Marcia Langton will seek legal advice over a post on Peter Dutton’s Instagram page.
- The post claims Langton branded No voters “racist” and “stupid”.
- Langton said the claim was “absolutely not true”.
“I will have to … ask a lawyer to write to Peter Dutton requesting that he remove this post from his Instagram because it is absolutely not true,” Langton told ABC radio on Wednesday.
No campaign using fear: Langton
“If you look at any reputable fact-checker, every one of them says the No case is substantially false. They are lying to you.”
On Wednesday, Langton flatly rejected the suggestion as “absolutely untrue”, but insisted some claims made by No campaigners – including that Indigenous people would receive compensation after a Yes vote – were racist.
“I was explaining how the No campaign is using fear and lies to frighten voters into voting No … it is the No campaign that is promoting division on the basis of race.”
Coalition stands by claim
“That simply doesn’t cut it.”
