Will be interesting with the first marriages happening this Saturday. If the decision goes against the ACT those marriages will need federal legislation to be annulled and I can’t see The Greens letting that through the Senate.

Well, they can wait six months and the Greens’ ability to do anything in the Senate evaporates.

Would be nice if the Greens concentrated on their core platform of being Green and left off the fringe nonsense that just loses them votes.

The Greens are not a single issue party and comment on social issues is well within their remit.

If you think The Greens opposing same-sex marriage would gain them votes rather than lose them, you’re well off in fantasy land.

Yes, because all the benders would be thinking, “Oh, those nasty Greens, focussing on their Environment platform, I’ll vote for Tony Abbott instead”.
