The bill calling for a same-sex marriage plebiscite has just been voted down in the Senate. 

It’s dead. 

The Senate Just Destroyed The Plebiscite’s Last Fucking Horcrux & Bye 5eva

By a margin of 29 in favour to 33 against, the Upper House voted to end the campaign for a popular vote on the issue of marriage equality.

Proponents of the plebiscite have continually claimed blocking it will lead to an indefinite delay to full marriage equality in Australia.

On the other hand, the bill’s detractors have tirelessly campaigned against the vote’s exorbitant cost, the seriously damaging rhetoric it would likely bring, and its overall pointlessness.

Now, it definitely bloody appears the Federal Government has been sent a message – that the parliament should just do its job and just vote on the issue of marriage equality, once and for all.


You better believe we’ll update you on the results of this one as they develop.
