Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


It’s got me stuffed. Australians hardly ever pass changes in the law by ballot. They have on only 8 of 44 occasions, and although this survey is not a referendum, or even a plebiscite, the "survey" if successful, will lead to fully gazetted legislation. So why are 70 per cent of citizens going to vote yes? But is it really 70 per cent? Or is it really about the question the pollster asked?

More likely it is the question, a highly biased question designed to evoke only a "YES" answer: “Do you agree with marriage equality?”

That question will almost always get a “yes”, and the GGGGLL will ride a wave of confidence all the way to where they want it to finish… and where they want it to finish they dare not tell you.

I read the question on the survey paper and it asks if you want the Marriage Act changed to accommodate gay marriage. That is not what will happen if a “yes” vote gets up. 

In fact the Marriage Act will be abolished completely and a new gender neutral Act will be drafted by the Gay Greens in the Senate, an Act that will please only the wind chime and bong manufacturers in the inner suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne, Byron Bay and South Australia all over.

Ex PM Howard is right when he says that we need to see the legislation first, but people are voting already and what’s to say the Gay Green Senate won’t make amendments we will never know about until they become law? 

They will get no resistance from Turnbull as he wants the whole gay crap off the table and forgotten about. And so do we. We have energy prices and the Zika Kid to entertain us… we are sick and tired of listening to moaning gay people and Sky and ABC interviewers agreeing with them.

On another part of the survey sheet I read, “If you make a mistake just ask us to send you another form”. On another part is says the survey is 100 per cent anonymous, no names no addresses, no worries.

What a perfect set up for the devious and well-organised GetUp mob to easily skew the result. They will already have a dozen schemes in place.

The survey sheet is of such poor quality that any Asian printer could run off an undetectable few million. Any number of union-committed postmen could take every letter home or deliver them to GetUp’s hard-working gnomes who distance themselves from Shorten and Wong.

This postal survey seems almost designed to be scammed.

And the cherry on the top is when the Government makes temporary laws (that will of course stay in place) where opponents of this scam can be fined $12,500 with an adjudicator by the name of George Brandis at the helm. He alone will decide if you are guilty of offending the "YES" brigade.

What more do you need to vote "NO"?

Or maybe you believe GetUp is an honest political pressure group? Or Maybe North Korea is a pacifist group? Or banks don’t steal your money?

Maybe you really want these hairy arm-pitted, bare-titted sheilas and bare-arsed loony-tune, radical, pillow biters writing your marriage vows for you. If so, then vote “YES”.

But I don’t believe a “YES” vote will survive. If it does, we are not true-blue Australians. Because true-blue Aussies would never vote yes to something as full of holes and as deviously scammable as this. 

A “YES” result could never be relied upon as even remotely accurate.

It’s more likely to be a “NO” result that CAN be relied upon because real Australians would never align themselves with a decadent, illegal mob like the Labor Green's GetUp.

We are better than that,

...I think... hmmm maybe we're not!


What's with that Snowflake Brandis trying to get her way with the High Court Judges seeing Georgina being political bias minded her list of favourites could be seen to be influencing the High Court seeing his intention is political /

So the gays say its all about LOVE, bullshit ! The real meaning of love is when two millionhairs meet or as my old man use to say" love is three spans from the chin"

A Self-Styled 'Gay Revolutionary' Offers a Challenge to Straight America:
"We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, ...wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us. All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our holy gods are handsome young men. ...We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed..."

The Noaphobes ,hate anyone who Votes NO ,and bullie and attack anyone who does vote No ! shows the mentality of these evil people who are bent on corrupting small children into their sick sordid ''lifestyle '' by trying to twist and bend their normal sexual orientation as a boy or a girl .a child these days cannot have a normal childhood anymore ,and now bombarded with this predatory rubbish

No doubt some Politicians Mate is going to get rich out of this ,''arr do you want the contract to print all these forms and post them out ? set you up for life '' !!!!

I would like to know who advised the PM on how to word the letter sent to us ?

The decision not to outline commitment to religious freedoms prior to any SSM legislation can be seen as a tactical decision. Waverers may well vote “Yes” if they think that religious freedom will be safeguarded.

Roger Corbett, on TV last night., succint, never nasty, said it as he felt
Not one word of, Bastards this, morons that, or homophobic marxist fascist dickensian somethings.
'Onya Roger, well said.

500 years since Luther posted his 17 theses and the culture of ongoing rebellion has arrived at homosexual "marriage" . What next ?

The campaign being waged by the vote Yes crowd is very similar to the vote Yes campaigns of 1916 and 1917, waged in favour of a vote for conscription for overseas service during the first world war. Just about every institution of note was on side; business, the media as it was then, the churches with some exceptions amongst the Catholic clergy, notably Archbishop Mannix. Like Turnbull, then PM Billy Hughes thought he had them won, particularly the first held in late 1916. And the result was a win for the No side on each occasion. The moral of that is simple. The majority of Australian voters know a bad idea for what it is when someone or other sticks it under their noses.

What it boils down to for me is that I am prepared to tolerate the LGBTXI?SSM acronym brigade living in my world - but I don't want to live in theirs. So the answer is NO!

I received my ballot in today's mail. Is the govt. seriously suggesting that I will just say YES to that idiotic question with no background information or detail on exactly how the Marriage Act will be changed? Everyone should read this:

There is no issue about this transgender rot. Male chromosomes include the XY chromosomes and female's the XX. THAT and THAT ALONE determines whether an individual is a male or female! The real problem are the idiots who mess with the brains of these kids! No two XX females can produce offspring together. Similarly no two males can produce offspring. I am sickened by the nonsense currently being bandied around. Even if the SSM 'comes in', it will not change the validity of such a relationship in God's eyes.

Have you noticed the traditional protest mob that support the yes vote supporters. Whenever there is a protest they will be there. Mostly the unemployed and unemployable living on our taxes who want to disrupt the community. Unfortunately they will have a vote as well given the simplicity of YES or NO. Most of them cannot read or write but placing a cross in a box is possible. This matter has all the hallmarks of being the most divisive ever faced by Australia. All to satisfy the desires of one half of one percent of the population. What more would you expect from socialist Turnbull and Brandis.

you would think or believe so,larry!I'm a bit nervy, but hope there's enough religious groups against these totalitarians.cant believe,im asking for the support of the muslims.They do like throwing them off the building.

Had a look at one of the forms the other day, you can see right through the envelope, what a joke and waste of taxpayer's money.





"Mental health groups are in urgent talks about how to deal with a dramatic spike in demand they are attributing to the same-sex marriage postal survey, with fears the situation will worsen further as the campaign goes on.

Digital youth service ReachOut said it has seen a 20 per cent surge in people accessing its online advice relating to LGBTIQ issues since August, when the postal survey became Turnbull government policy.
