Posting too often

Perhaps I should be using Twitter. Is it a sign of mental illness when you post on your blog too often? You may have picked up that I am on holidays from work and I am also a wee bit stressed by personal problems.

The gay marriage plebiscite hangs over us. On tv a famous dyke Polish immigrant exchanged words with a famous Scottish musician immigrant married to Thai born women and they discussed modern Australia. They were in furious agreement.

When our Prime Minister and Her Majesty's Leader of the Opposition both are quite happy for gay people to marry, why are we spending millions of dollars on this plebiscite?

It would not be so bad if it was a binding vote. The plebiscite will indicate the opinion of the people, but it is not binding and members of our governing Liberal Party (Liberal Party really should be put in inverted commas) have already stated they will not vote to approve gay marriage.

I understand this has been forced on our Prime Minister by his party. Tossers. God save us from the Liberal Party.

Meanwhile, advocates of gay marriage, bide your time. There will be a time when it when it just goes through parliament without any fuss.

  1. It infuriates me that so much money that could be put to much better use will be used to confirm what we already know everyone is happy with! What are you going to do with your time off Andrew, I do hope peace reigns in the High-rise in the very near future!

  4. Sigh. Given the budget emergency we hear about there are much, much better uses for this money. 'Liberal'? Very, to the top end of town.

    1. Budget emergency nonsense. Frightening everyone into accepting spending cuts to those who can least afford to lose money.

  5. I think the plebiscite will be damaging in more ways than we have thought of. Not to mention a complete waste of money.

    1. Too true Fen, but kind of trusting Labor, I don't think it will go ahead.

    1. Merle, while they do so at their peril, they seem to quite happily go against voter's opinions.
