If it was so important, why not have the plebiscite?

The plebiscite amounted to a $175 million public opinion poll. Politicians wouldn’t even agree to make the result binding. Now we can just ask them to do their jobs, and have a free vote in Parliament. Also, imagine growing up an LGBTI kid in a small town, and seeing months of advertising against your rights to equality, love and happiness. Or being the child of a lesbian or gay couple and seeing months of taxpayerfunded ads telling you that your family is wrong. Lots of mental health experts asked the government not to do this.

Do you think our politicians should be given a chance to vote their conscience on this, and we can get it done tomorrow?
