He's a fucking coward. His constituents wanted him to vote yes and he couldn't. Pathetic.
One of the highest yes voting electorates in the county and the spineless cunt still can't vote. What a fucking weak sack of animal shit. I've seen jellyfish with more backbone than him.
Probably scared it might make him gay
Go you bloody good thing! Marriage Equality passes in Australia
GG ratifies within a week, and then the government sets a date for it to actually be law. I'd expect by the end of the month.
I think once royal assent is granted then it's all good, but that could take up to a week.
I think once the GG signs it....maybe?
Curious - when can people actually get married as a result of this? Is there a legal turnaround time that’s required? Or once the bill gets royal assent can they just go for it?
What an awful legacy this image will be for them
Katter and Broadbent were the only ones to vote against it?
This pic is why I'm glad they called that last division.
I had no idea. Is this truly how they vote? By sitting on one side or the other?
The Lower House has voted yes
They should let Tony Abbott do the third reading!
Finally reason has won.
Well...not gonna lie.
This moved me more than I thought it would. I didn't realise I was so emotionally involved in this one.
Shed a little tear watching it. Boss walked passed "you right?" "yeh, must be some damn onions around"....
A small but nice moment: it passed on the voices.
That means, when the Speaker of the House called for ‘Yes’ (should the bill pass) and ‘No’ (should the bill not pass), the ‘Yes’ vote was so obviously in the majority that there was no need for a division and formal count on the floor.
That is, the bill passed with an obvious and overwhelming majority.
Not yet it hasn't. Try again in a few minutes.
None of this must be true.
I received messages telling me the silent majority of Australia was going to rise up, vote this down and that it would prompt a wave of restoration to hardcore conservative values.
I was repeatedly told that reddit/sub/australia was a far left echo chamber and not representative of how the country would vote at all.
Surely that could not have been wrong. Right fellow shills ? Does this mean our gay agenda cheques will continue to go through ?
Not till Cosgrove signs it.
See, gay marriage does destroy traditional same-sex marriage!
As soon as she is finished having her fleece removed.
So he was sitting on it until the by-election was done. Wonder when he's going to introduce the girlfriend?
oh so were fucking allowed to talk about it now without young lib shills ranting about it being unfounded allegations?
Finally, now we can force all the no voters to get gay married.
BOB KATTER DOESNT HAVE TO SPEND ANY MORE TIME ON IT!
What an exhausting, exhausting battle but we finally did it. Love to all. This is monumental.
Abbott said he would vote yes after the survey result. The cunt abstained by leaving.
As a gay Australian who has been with his partner for 6 years- I’d like to thank you all for giving me this joyous opportunity to wed the light of my life before my elderly grandparents pass.
The wait has caused much suffering, but it’s never too late to put things right.
As a gay young Australian, I cannot describe how happy this makes me. No amendments. Finally, equal. 🏳️🌈
As ridiculous as this whole process has been, I do really enjoy being a part of Australian history.
EDIT: Fuck Turnbull for being smug about this. Indecisive cunt.
I'm suddenly going to have a lot of weddings to attend. Including my own...
Labor had plenty of chances
Welp... I'm getting married.
Labor voted as a block for yes. Quite a few amendments were put forward aiming to secure increased protections for religious freedom, particularly for marriage celebrants, but all amendments were rejected.
About fucking time. Anyone know who voted for what?
"every 3 months somebody is killed by a crocodile in north Queensland!! "
That looks like the face of a man who just saw someone get killed by a crocodile.
Nah, it's someone who's realised it's been 3 months since the last one....
"Every three months, a gay couple is killed by a crocodile in North Queensland".
Gotta keep it in the spirit of things mate
