  1. Further proof White Australia, is indeed an ex-penal colony.

      The representative of the Head of State speaks in favour of the gay marriage and you describe the county as an ex-penal colony?

      1. The representative of the “ceremonial” head of state speaks up just before they retire, yet said nothing during the ongoing political battle over the last 5 years plus, the “representatives” boss, QE2, has already publicly endorsed full equality. Talk about wimping out to the very last minute.

        The head of Australia’s “Left Wing” government still rejects equal marriage, plus Australia was an ex penal colony. The vast majority of white citizens of Australia have prisoner DNA, like it or nor. It is genetics and history.

          The DNA means nothing to me. Your determinist statements are unappealing.

        2. G’day. I am a white Australian and my heritage is actually German/Danish. I do love that you say its “prisoner DNA” but would like to point out that those ‘prisoners’ all came from where…? Yes, you guessed it… From the British colonies! Also just for history sake, hundreds of marines and their families were among those that settled this big island gaol, so you never know; some may have ‘military DNA’! Not that I have a problem with your view, I’d just like to say though: Convict by heritage, Guilty by choice!

  2. I see Abbott is more popular than anthrax and bubonic plague, but has bungled his first few weeks in office, according to opinion polls. One hopes that Malcolm Turnbull decides to mount a coup soon…

  3. PM Abbott say’s it was appropriate for the GG to say what she did, because he knows she’s out of the job next March, and he’ll put his own person into the job then. If he really supported Marriage Equality, he’d allow the members of his own party a conscience vote when the issue came before the Parliament last time, which he didn’t, and in any possible subsequent vote, but he won’t!! and this is the man who’s sister has come out as Lesbian. And whilst the ACT territory government has introduced Marriage Equality, the federal government of which he is the leader, will is taking the matter to the High Court, to have it overturned. We are not holding our breath for any change, whilst he’s in power.
