D Day

Tomorrow the result of the equality of marriage vote poll survey will be announced. If the vote goes horribly wrong, we can take some solace from our State Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, who wrote this very comforting piece for The Age newspaper.

  1. Good advise in that article.
    Tomorrow we will know what we all voted, well those that did as I'm sure many didn't.

    1. Margaret, it is so little importance to me, but so important to so many.

  2. That is a truly lovely article.
    I cannot say how angry I am that those who oppose the move from Parliament are drafting legislation to put it in place if the yes vote gets up (as I hope it will). Having their cake, eating their cake and banking their cake. Blatant hypocracy.

    1. EC, yes, trying to enshrine discriminatory laws in legislation before the vote is even known.

  3. I'm already angry and I will continue to be angry no matter the outcome of the vote. I don't know if you saw Four Corners last night Andrew but it was awful. That any of these garbage people are in positions of power in our country, how the heck did this happen to us? :(

    1. Snoskred, I half saw Four Corners. I did not like what I saw, mostly. How the heck has our country become so awful.

  6. A lovely article. Where is the equivalent soothing tone from the 'No' camp?

    1. Don't hold your breath, Victor. Anyway, with the result now known, perhaps the 'no' camp needs to author a comforting piece for the no voters.
