'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Lower House, not a creature was stirring, except for Tony Abbott, though he would describe his behaviour as "defending a conservative vision for Australia". The Parliament was hung by the inadequate leadership of the two major parties, in hopes that their obstinance would be rewarded next … Continue reading In Canberra, They’re Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
After a certain point, doing nothing is an implicit endorsement of the status quo.
I'm just going to say it. Anyone boycotting the vote in this bullshit postal plebiscite is worse than Tony Abbott. He may be a homophobic piece of shit, but at least he's standing up for what he believes in. This is your chance to shut him up.
