Sadly — The worst part will be when the counts are tallied.

Hey David, thank you for your thoughtful comment. I absolutely agree with you. If the Survey gets a Yes endorsement, we will then have to navigate the passing of legislation. I have no doubt that the Right, ie., conservative politicians, organisations and the religious organisations and clergy will attempt to either slow down or impede the passing of legislation, or try to tack something onto it so that it will be unpalatable and therefore not supportable, or to wind back anti-discrimination laws on religious grounds. I hope the ALP, Greens and other MPs who support the change will be strong enough to stand up to these ‘dying-fly’ last resort attempts to stop marriage equality. As for money coming in from America, I don;t think we’ve begun to understand the influence of the American Right in this country yet. Certainly Bernardi went over and trained with them some years back, and Abbott has no problem in going over to speak at one of their conventions. It will be something to keep an eye on. Once again, thank you for your thoughts.
