Sterling idea, RED. But in reality, they are not interested in what you or I think. This post-out is just a stunt to keep Turnbull's party in one piece.

When this postal vote takes place, if it takes place, is it simply a case of 50.1% of the vote going yes and the motion is passed ?

No, no, and no. It is just an opinion poll that should have been outsourced to Roy Morgan for a tiny fraction of the cost.

Whatever the result, short of 75%+ one way or the other, cue the endless excuses on the theme of, it wasn't fair and doesn't prove anything.

... it's about what we pay in interest on our debt, every 6 hours!!!! 

... about 3 days wages for our Public Servants, pays for 3% of ONE submarine, or about 125 School Halls.

This is NOT a waste of money ... people don't have any real concept of what a waste of money really is in the hands of our representatives!!!Embarrassed

 
Only reason it would not not be binding is if the result is NO.

Anyone except Bullgelati Bill will do!LOL 

... won't be Tony, Dutton appears to be the anointed one, and would probably do Ok - he reminds me of Paul Keating in some ways (without the searing sarcastic wit!), that was the last time I can recall voting ALP too. 

We experimented with a woman before, no need to make THAT mistake again!Wink

Well if it's not a waste of money. Perhaps they could transfer the cash to me and I will run the poll for half price

Somebody should make a complete list of all the reasons given during this campaign on why we should oppose marriage equality. It will be a long list and probably a full time job keeping up with them so I'm out. The anti's are endlessly inventive. I've read some absolute doosies in the Murdoch press and it's only just started.

The intolerant, violent, abusive LGBTI anarchists will ensure that there will be no factual discourse on the subject by anyone Ouch

Marxism at it's purest ... supported 100% by Bullgelati Bill and The Australian Labor Pedos. 

Same-sex marriage event off: threats to hotel staff

A ferocious campaign against Christian groups planning to meet on same-sex marriage has forced them to cancel the event at a major hotel next week, amid claims of physical threats from marriage-equality advocates.

The Accor Hotels group confirmed late yesterday that the function had been abandoned after a social media storm triggered phone calls that “rattled” employees and left the company concerned about the safety of staff and guests.

Betting agency Sportsbet reports heavy backing for the "No" proposition, though "Yes" remains favourite.

I'm not surprised at all max!

The intolerant Marxists of the LGBTQI movement love nothing more than abusing anyone who they merely perceive as not cheering for the Rainbow Flag ... not a recommenced way of winning their hearts and postal votes!!!Stern Smile

If these belligerent bullies of the left don't "get it" soon, they will push this vote to the right, just by pissing off more and more "don't cares" to the point that they will be motivated to vote NO.Embarrassed
