Good morning all! The week that just flew had a nicer face than usual. Unless you’re Robert Mugabe. Or you voted ‘No’.
Christmas is upon us. Or is it? The actual start date for the holiday has long been disputed, so we’re holding a non-binding vote to sort it out. Vote now!
In the wake of the High Court’s decision, I thought I’d bust myth the anti-marriage equality crowd cling to. The idea of tradition is not automatically a positive, even if it’s been legitimised by repetition.
Yesterday, posters littered Melbourne spouting insane homophobic rhetoric. Today, the PM sees the same rhetoric as a normal part of the democratic process.
As the plebiscite creeps closer, the opinions regarding marriage equality becomes louder. Sadly, some of those views are not as well thought out as others.
Well. Good morning to you, and well done, you’ve survived. This week there was much stroking of US warheads, local egos and protracted references as Walmart references Columbine.
The plebiscite. You don’t like it, I don’t like it. However, those who plan to silently protest through abstaining should know that they’ll be viewed as those opposed in the days to come.
With the Coalition’s marriage equality meeting progressing as well as we assumed, I’m wondering if our national tryst with apathy is here to stay.
Even if marriage equality is decided by a free vote, we should not celebrate. Equality for the sake of power is not the same as equality for equality’s sake.
Yesterday, the Turnbull Government reached peak Turnbull Government, in that they’ve become fluent in doublespeak, using it on multiple fronts.
Oh, the week it was. We found out that Trumble is sleeping on the couch, AusPol kicked back into its petty stride and Fox Sports fought a bloke who televised a fight.
Morning! What happened while you were asleep? Well, the US election got clearer, sort of, Jacqui Lambie vowed to save SSM with Pauline, and book lovers stepped closer to seclusion.
The reanimation of a corpse, a senator dropping bombs and an atomic friend-zoning was all present this week in #AusPol. So, who won?
The death of an unpopular popular vote, a man re-broke Bad and there was a series of rather unfortunate clusterboinks. So, who won Auspol this week?
Something seemed very familiar about how the plebiscite is being handled. As it turns out, I’ve seen that movie before. Tell me about, stud.
With George Brandis set to meet Mark Dreyfus to organise the terms of the plebiscite, one reader had something to get off his chest.
What a week. Violence again made itself known in the US, as our own politicians changed tack on their policies…before staying true to them. Very nice.
Morning! What happened while you were asleep? Well, Peta Credlin got around the plebiscite deadlock, the Internet went wackadoo after a lightning bolt killed some ruminants, and meme Gene Wilder died at 83.
With Labor set to reject the same-sex marriage plebiscite, and the Coalition set to remove the possibility of a vote if they do; what have we learnt?
Hello all and welcome to this week’s Current Affairs Wrap. Tragedy has struck in central Italy, more controversy on the coast of France, Plebiscite madness at home and some feels from the US for a change.
In part three of our What’s Nexit? series: the response to the Brexit challenges not the result of the referendum but the democratic process which achieved it.
The upcoming plebiscite on same-sex marriage will decide my future, and, as the day drags closer, all I feel is fear, apathy and disassociation.
