Neutrality tags[edit]

We dont just go around slapping neutrality tags on articles for the hell of it when there are no fact tags or any discussion added to this page in conjunction with that tag. Timeshift 05:57, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

World war One, Mannix, IWW and Conscription[edit]

It is commonly claimed that much of the opposition to conscription was due to the agitation of Mannix, it is questionable if this is so. Notably respected Australian labour histroian Ian Turner question it in his "Industrial Labour and Politics in Eastern Australia 1900-1921" questioned it, according to Turner more catholics voted for conscription in Mannix's home city of Melbourne than in Sydney. So it is hard toa rgue that Mannix had any effect. Maybe he had an unintentional pro-conscription effect! According to Turner farmers worried about labour shortages were a more significant source of "conservative" opposition to conscription. The Mannix factor is part of the folklore of the anti-conscription battle but if it is to be claimed as part of its history then a positive citation is needed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 210.84.5.211 (talk) 05:24:24, August 19, 2007 (UTC)
