Political Deliberation on the goldfields

This was written for the miners in 1853

Political Deliberation is the poor man’s right arm,
It brought the Magna Carta to the Barons,
Catholic Emancipation to the Irish and triumphal
repeat of the Corn Laws for the people of England.
Surely it would bring democracy to the gold diggers of Victoria.

George Thomson, chartist and leader of the Red Ribbon Movement, August 1853.
