The former Coalition minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt says his former party is using the same “fearmongering” tactics it deployed during the native title debate to sink the voice, and has accused Peter Dutton of spreading fear and division.

Wyatt quit the Liberal party in April this year after Dutton announced the party would be supporting the no case in the voice referendum. He told ABC radio on Friday that he has since seen the party lurch to the right and its tactics have become “Trumpian”.
