Today’s royal gazette covers a number of topics not getting aired. One such topic revolves around the review of discrimination based upon sexual orientation.
Regardless of whether you are for or against a chance in the human rights legislation, what is abundantly clear is that our leadership on both sides are incapable and incompetent when it comes to making a decision on this issue.
Mrs. Louise Jackson has it half right and half wrong
“We believe it is a matter for a conscience vote in Parliament.”
Parliament has demonstrated it’s ineffectiveness in this matter already.
“We believe it is a matter for each individual to decide how to vote on this matter.”
This however, has merit. Don’t leave it up to the politicians, put it to the people in a plebiscite (which is a vote requested of the people by government and differs from a referendum which is a vote requested by the people via a petition) and let the people choose whether we support this change or not.
