Given the stipulations in the legislation it’s no more ‘slippery’ than the Mad Monks citizenship status.

Oh......wait....

Well hopefully you will never be in the position to require use of such a law, but why deny it to someone else? It's taken 20 years to get up again. Hopefully it will last longer than the NT's attempt.

Bound too. Canberra can't override state law. It will require the Victorian Parliament to rescind it. (Unless the Victorian Governor chooses not to sign the Act into law.)

The way things are going up here, I won't be surprised if we eventually lose Self-Government too.

The long march of progressive theory is unraveling our society faster than down south; because it has less historical inertia and cultural homogeny to overcome.

Vote in Queensland
 
Time to vote, maybe One Nation is the team, unless of course you vote Laberal.

As for the Youth in Asia question, lets kill all the babies, then kill all the old folk - or maybe as Billy said, "Kill all the lawyers first"
Or if you are a servo, just kill everyone.

Annastacia Palaszczuk on track to win Queensland, as One Nation fizzles

Good to see Malcolm the village idiot crash and burn in Ipswich. What a shame!

Not exactly correct, appears that the major parties are the over all losers. Folk are fairly jaded with the laberals to the extent that a lot of votes went to third parties and independents, the new compulsory preferential voting system as always will favour the major parties. It may be some time until a definitive result is declared, appears that there will be no majority of seats for any party.

"In a disappointing night for the Liberal National Party and its leader Tim Nicholls - and one that could have significant federal implications for the Turnbull government too"

Except that the last time the state elections went like this the LNP came back and won at the federal election.

Where the hell did you learn your politics? Preferential voting has always favoured minor parties - look at the Senate results and the number of times the winner in the House of Reps has also won in the Senate for example. My home state of Tasmania is even more extreme with its Hare-Clark voting system which is a form of preferential voting.

Yes, the bum boys have been validated. Equal in their own minds, at least.

A disgraceful turn of events for the country.

Bet you long for the days when sodomy was a criminal offence, eh?

Don't worry, it's still illegal in the Middle East.

Someone’s got the sadz :)

HAF, thankfully your type is a dying breed. What's disgraceful is the fact that we had to spend $120million on a survey to tell us what we already knew to pander to zealots on the religious right. That is an utter disgrace.

Traffic_Is_Er_Was 8th Dec 2017 12:25

Playing devils advocate, you could as easily say we spent $120 million pandering to the feelings of a vocal minority.

De_flieger 8th Dec 2017 12:43

Yes, $120 million pandering to the outspoken vocal minority and then he didn't even vote! Same-sex marriage bill: Tony Abbott didn?t vote

Spot on de_flieger.

The silent majority spoke and the stats show if you are against SSM chances are you an immigrant living in Western Sydney! Maybe the RWNs are right about a failure to integrate with Australian values after all.

$120M to survey the nation was entirely the Coalition's doing. Nobody else wanted it.

le Pingouin 9th Dec 2017 03:58

So how does that explain Sydney Anglicans?

Where on Earth did you get that crazy idea Chuboy?

Wasn't 2013 four years ago? Did you lose track of time or just forget that political parties can change their view?
