PLEBISCITE IS A BRIDGE TOO FAR

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

NO won­der the av­er­age Aussie gets frus­trated with politi­cians.

Can­berra has now been forced to send the same sex mar­riage is­sue to a plebiscite. It will cost about $122 mil­lion to send out to the Aus­tralian pub­lic by mail on a non-com­pul­sory vote.

The av­er­age Aussie only votes when it's com­pul­sory to avoid a fine. Then, if I heard cor­rectly, when the re­sult gets back to Can­berra they once again have to vote.

It's like a dog chas­ing its tail. Once again the ex­pen­sive Se­nate in Can­berra is show­ing it's use­less.

We could have had a new Man­durah Es­tu­ary bridge built along­side the ex­ist­ing one in­stead of a “Clay­tons” vote. Un­be­liev­able. CHAR­LIE GIB­SON, Fal­con
