Pretty amazing isn’t it?  Barnaby Joyce, our beloved and internationally admired beetroot,  is sick of people talking to him about the same sex marriage, non-binding taxpayer funded opinion poll postal survey and LNP-internal-ruction-soothing mechanism.  

Well, Barnaby, you voted FOR this process.  Barnaby is a politician, he represents the people of an electorate, he’s a public figure, so he can’t really be that surprised that a decision he took is a topic of some debate and that some people want to express their views about it – even to him.  

Speaking of the marriage survey, I was reminded this morning that Lyle Shelton, the head honcho of the Australian Christian Lobby, once said if there was a vote in favour of same sex marriage, one of his biggest fears was that he’ be mistaken for a gay man.  

Which particular gay man he didn’t make clear.


A former public servant, Terry Grosvenor-Jones enjoys his suburban obscurity. He raises weeds from seed and has been known to go to the shops. On Monday evenings he enjoys quality time with his wife as they share the joy that comes from throwing shoes at Q&A. Jonesy has a great collection of ancient movies and TV shows that he wants to share with us. Relive your great grandparents youth as he brings us stories and stars from the movies and programs from the land before time. Well, before the 70s at least.
