    Turnbull wants a resolution by X-mas. I want a date with Jessica Chastain.

    I can see this being drawn out for as long as possible unfortunately.

    Lolz!

    I suppose I shouldn’t be impatient. I just assumed it was an instant thing. Maybe I should wait til it passes through Parliament and if I haven’t The Feels by then, I’ll consult my GP

    SOURCES: https://marriagesurvey.abs.gov.au/results/results.html

    http://www.censusdata.abs.gov.au/census_services/getproduct/census/2016/quickstat/

    From a quick analysis of the above data, I have come to the following conclusions:-
    • Political leanings played little or no part in voting YES or NO.
    • Being born in Australia had no bearing on the vote either. Just look at Bruce and Maranoa.
    • Same for both parents being born overseas as shown by Blaxland (71.2%) versus Maranoa (9.7%) who both had a NO majority.
    • There is a strong correlation between religious leanings and voting style. Those electorates with a high No Religion.percentage had a high YES vote percentage.
    • I find it strange that the electorates with the highest YES votes have the lowest marriage rates. Unless there is a large proportion of LGBT people living in these electorates desire to put the ring on each other's finger..

    Take two Panadol and have a lie down.

    If your condition doesn't improve within 12 hours, please consult your doctor.

    Just be careful you could end up with one of those prostrate examinations where the doctor has a hand on each of your shoulders

    He's odds on to have caught the gay after this announcement

    I reckon Magda Szubanski will ditch her current partner to "marry" Rebecca Judd.

    A mismatch that could only be made in hell.
