Overwhelming majority.

Parliament will have no choice but to pass the legislation.

Mal says he'll have it as law by Christmas.

Looks like he won't go down as a total failure after all.

The conservatives' call to include 'religious protections' is unconstitutional, in my view. The Parliament has no power to make such laws. Also, they cannot make laws 'respecting religion, and the exercise thereof'.

They will need to be careful in their legislation. But, in any event, just change the Marriage Act to reflect this totally predictable outcome, and they can fiddle around the edges with other stuff later.

Here's a question: why did Western Sydney vote overwhelmingly against SSM?

That Liberal prick Hastie (ex Army Officer and you'd expect him to know about the broad concept of 'orders') is going to abstain from the vote. No you arsehole! You are in Canberra to represent your electorate, 60% of whom voted 'yes.' You are not there, you piece of ego shit, to represent yourself. Do your fucking duty, you slime ball!

So, Aussie, you are making someone vote in a non compulsory vote?

Fair enough!

All I know is my flesh and blood went to both world wars and apparently consequences are no longer allowed to be discussed in the democracy they fought for!
