Hasn’t it been quite the spectacle watching our pollies take on the wheel of death lately?
Then there’s the jaw-dropping juggling act of the same-sex marriage plebiscite.
Mind you we already know what she thinks about stuff and it’s going to cost us $122 million!! You hear her say it again "$122 million". Then there's the age thing, can 16-year-olds join in? Yes, they can. Oh, wait … no, never mind.
You’d think it’d be comforting to know that we’re not the only country who seems to have flown over the cuckoo’s nest.
If there’s one positive thing that’s come out of our Ministry of Madness of late, it’s the fact that the same-sex marriage debate has prompted a huge number of people — mostly young people — to add themselves to the electoral rolls.
Before the poll was announced the AEC estimated that more than 800,000 people weren’t on there, with around 300,000 of them aged 18 to 24.
The huge upsurge in people signing up to vote on SSM has shown that we’re actually interested in the issues, and when it comes to something we care about we will mobilise.
Maybe that’s what politicians are scared of. We might learn that we ourselves still have the power, not them!
What we don’t care about is the endless political point scoring. We’re sick of the “gotcha” mentality. We're sick of you blaming the other side of politics for problems that just need solutions.
I'm hoping that a plague of commonsense descends on the house or I'll be forced to listen to the National Anthem on a loop until I die.
