On Wednesday morning at 10am, the Australian Bureau of Statistics announced that Australia has voted Yes in the Australian Marriage Equality Postal Survey.
Now, they’re tweeting everything we wish we could say and more.
We’ll let them do the talking – here’s a roundup of the heartfelt, the hilarious, and the bloody brilliant tweets coming through in response to the Yes result.
Just to be clear, now that the #MarriageEquality results are in and resounding, my tolerance of any politician dicking around with the legislative process on this is EXACTLY ZERO.
