    The tide will turn, it’s unstoppable. Don’t give up, Australia, you will win.

    Gillard and Abbott are both in their caves of denial. Nothing will change till both of them are sent packing off the political scene. Gillard will go at the election. Abbott will be sacked by his party for stupidity, while being the most embarrassing PM in Australian history..

      I hope so for all forward looking Aussies. Great country great people. Keep pushing for SSM .

    2. You obviously didn’t see Gillard’s sycophantic speech in her strine accent to the US Congress…now that was embarrassing.

    New Zealand has a bill of rights, America does as well!

    Does Australia NOPE!

    That explains a lot of it!

    It will take a constitutional amendment to the 1900 Australian Constitution that says: -

    “Section 300
    (1) You can not discriminate under any circumstances under the existing, current or future laws of Australia – on the basis of; age, race, creed, colour, ethnicity, religious or political affiliation, trade union or volunteer membership, marital or relationship status, sex or gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, HIV status or other disability.

    (2) Marriage under this Constitution is to include two adult persons only in a voluntary monogamous loving relationship recognised under Australian law and other laws internationally from other nations which have the same or similar laws”

    That would make sure the Government implements same sex marriage – by Australia having a bill of rights within the Constitution!
