If you, like me, spent the last few hours watching the House of Representatives as they slogged their way through a whole shitload of humdrum speeches from conservative MPs who earnestly, earnestly believe that marriage equality is going to usher in the apocalypse, you’re probably pretty exhausted.
But it was pretty nice when all that wrapped up, marriage equality became law and then the whole bloody Parliament and public gallery – with the exception of some notable sad sacks, who will remain nameless and are officially cancelled – broke into a spontaneous rendition of ‘We Are Australian’.
Have a looksie:
