I desperately want tomorrow to be a yes. The the whole process has been a disgrace and never should have happened.
But that statement by Andrews is purely a Labor ad cynically dressed up as a sympathetic call to arms. Fark that.
Labor had the chance to legislate for same sex marriage while in government a number of times and didn’t have the stones to do it. Rudd was elected with a massive majority and more political capital than maybe any PM ever. This issue was on the radar then and he completely dogged it. Gillard, a staunch believer in the cause, took over Rudds parliamentary majority and could also have legislated for it but publicly changed/denied her long held view. Again, gutless.
Labor are only the allies of the SSM movement now because it’s politically convenient for them and their sanctimony about it makes me sick.
Anyway, lets hope it’s a yes tomorrow.
