Re: New Zealand legalises same-sex marriage

I'm so happy for New Zealand but this is a major embarrassment for Australia where we like to think we are "ahead" of New Zealand (even though they are technically ahead of us as far as Time Zones go, hehe).

I still can't fathom why Julia Gillard (our left wing Prime Minister) doesn't support gay marriage. It makes no sense at all, I can only think she's pandering to religious groups.

Meanwhile we keep hearing rumblings that Liberal Party (conservative) leader Tony Abbott may eventually allow a conscience vote by his party on Gay Marriage should the issue rise again in Parliament. With several State leaders now for it and popular opinion definitely for it, I would hope we might see it realised after the next Election, which is already set for September 14.
I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed, what's the point in having you all? - The Doctor, interrupting a very important conversation.
