If you believe in it Albo, legislate it otherwise you prove it was just lip service all along.
Here's hoping there is some genuine reflection on why it failed so we can get it right next time.
@areader and there in lays the problem and why the referendum didn't pass.
@laura__palmer I agree, there is enough merit to both sides of the conversation without the need to bring that rubbish into it. I might not trust the government on a lot of issues but I trust the AEC to run a fair vote.
The Yes camp misunderstands the No camp and their opposition to the referendum and in doing so fail to understand how to engage with it. The issues surrounding the referendum are not black and white, there are multiple reasons people oppose it.

Is there anything else that can happen to you poor bastards in Melbourne?
I'm really struggling to understand why you wouldn't talk to the police in his situation.
Gladys has given up and/or been burnt out. She won't contest the next election
This is the other side of cancel culture and the "good" guys also need to be aware of the consequences of their actions and opinions.
Thankfully I live in a state that has avoided all but localised Covid lock downs and has no outbreaks in over a year. While I understand the financial toll that lack of tourism has done to the state along with the mental toll of not being able to see loved ones I would much prefer that to the overall damage to both that lockdowns and Covid cases would bring if we open our borders too soon.
@rush I saw something similar. Most of them are all pro-life until they need to wear a small piece of fabric over their face.
