The Voice: How former Neighbors star Nicola Charles’ conspiracy video convinced thousands of bizarre Voice plot – leading Anthony Albanese to reveal the truth
A former Neighbors star has helped fuel a bizarre conspiracy that Voice to Parliament is actually a secret UN plot to deprive Australians of their land.
Nicola Charles, who played Sarah Beaumont in the hit 90s series, has built a career fighting against lockdowns and vaccines under the nickname “The White Rabbit”.
In recent months, Charles, 53, has targeted the upcoming referendum on Voice to Parliament, saying a Yes victory in the October 14 vote would result in a United Nations “coup” that would “appoint a man and a woman in each district. ‘ to fulfill his insidious wishes.
Former Neighbors star Nicola Charles (pictured) has helped fuel a bizarre conspiracy that Voice to Parliament is actually a secret UN plot to strip Australians of their land.
Charles appeared as Sarah Beaumont in the hit 90s series (pictured), before launching into the fight against lockdowns and vaccines under the nickname ‘The White Rabbit’.
“This completely changes the law on jurisdiction,” Charles said in a rambling 17-minute video, according to the ABC.
“This is an invasion of the one world government, the UN.”
An ABC analysis found that versions of Charles’ video have been shared on Facebook more than 25,000 times and attracted more than half a million views since it was posted in August.
For comparison, the most shared video post by official organizers of the No, Fair Australia campaign was shared fewer than 17,000 times.
The conspiracy is so widespread that Anthony Albanese debunked it at an event in late September.
“During this campaign, there has been a lot of information spread, including by some who know it is not true,” Mr. Albanese said.
He added: “There is also worse information on some social media about global conspiracies that the United Nations will control all land in Australia – all land – you will lose private ownership of everyone’s home with a yes vote .”
“It’s just absurd.”
But a week later his speech was selectively edited to remove context, leaving the words: “The United Nations will control all land in Australia – all land – you will lose private ownership of everyone’s homes and you will vote Yes”.
The maliciously edited clip has since spread online.
The conspiracy that the UN is a shadowy organization acting against Australia’s interests dates back to the 1980s.
One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts referred to it in his 2016 inaugural speech.
“Australia’s values and way of life are also under threat from insidious institutions such as the unelected UN,” Mr Roberts said.
He called for Australia to leave the UN, which he called a “monolithic socialist monster”.
Charles did not respond to the ABC’s request for comment.
Before the 7.30pm broadcast, she posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Apparently I’m being featured as Australia’s #1 conspiracy theorist on ABC News tonight.”
After the show aired, she added, “I think maybe they chickened out.”
