And they’re voting!

So the committee stages of the Civil Union Bill has been relatively uninteresting. Plenty of wank, not much spunk ;o)

The highlight for me was Georgina Beyer getting a ruling that calling the Civil Unions 'marriage in drag' is offensive and is no longer allowed. This was after she was getting pulled up for using the word 'homophobe'. I'll throw up the transcript when I can get it.

But the bells have just gone and they're in for the voting on all of the amendments. There are quite a lot of them so it will go for a while. And as it is a personal vote, quite a while means approxiamately 5 hours of voting on 75ish amendments.
