The Hansard for the CUB First Reading is now online.
A total of 18 MPs spoke in the one hour debate. I’ve extracted a quote or two from all 18 speakers below.
My awards for best and worst speakers are as follows:
Best speaker in favour – Moana Mackey – its above love not legal rights.
Worst speaker in favour – Matt Robson – just shut up about the SIS please – this was a debate on civil unions!
Best speaker against – Peter Dunne – for not demonising gays
Worst speaker against – Bill Gudgeon – “this bill is an abomination to all mankind” indeed – what planet is this man on?
