The overwhelming Yes vote in the postal survey on gay marriage shows that the polls were right, Australians are not the homophobic lot that a small minority of federal politicians want to believe and govern for.
No doubt a referendum to recognise Aboriginal people in the constitution would have a similar result. Prime Minister Turnbull should now ignore the racist few in parliament and get on with it. It won’t repair the damage done by white people since the invasion, but will be a start.
Our prime minister should stop pandering to the handful of racist, sexist homophobes, and climate sceptics in the parliament and govern on behalf of the majority of decent, intelligent Australians.
