  1. Thank goodness New Zealand isn’t such a backward nation when it comes to equality and human rights. Of course, what can you expect from a country whose human rights record is so disgraceful …..

    This article is riddled with mistakes. First Sarah Hanson-Young is in the Australian FEDERAL senate not the Tasmanian Senate. Her bill was voted down federally by a thumping majority indicating that any gay rights bill will fail from now on federally.

    The Twsmanian government tried to introduce gay marriage unilaterally at state level earlier this year but were blocked by their own senate who voted it down. Since then there has been another senate election in Hobart and if anything the senate is even more conservative and dominated by religious nutters.

    It is only in South Australia or the ACT where there are lower and upper houses in line on this issue.
