    Высокий суд Австралии принял решение об аннулировании однополых браков и признал недавно вступивший в действие закон о легализации однополых браков противоречащим федеральному законодательству, сообщает телекомпания ABC.

    В документе поясняется, что принятый в Канберре закон о легализации однополых браков идёт вразрез с федеральным законом 1961 года, определяющим брак как союз между мужчиной и женщиной.

    По мнению суда, решение о легализации однополых браков находится в компетенции парламента страны. Австралийский парламент рассматривал соответствующий законопроект в 2012 году и не принял его.

    Напомним, что закон, легализующий однополые браки, на австралийской столичной территории был принят 22 октября 2013 года и вступил в силу 7 декабря 2013 года.

    Австралийская столичная территория стала первым регионом Австралии, легализовавшим подобные браки. Как ранее сообщалось, в столице Австралии с момента вступления закона в силу состоялось 27 бракосочетаний однополых пар, теперь все они будут аннулированы. Действующий премьер-министр Тони Эббот, избранный в этом году, обещал всячески противодействовать заключению однополых браков.

    В настоящий момент однополые браки разрешены в 15 странах мира, в том числе в Нидерландах, Франции, странах Скандинавии, Бразилии и Новой Зеландии. В США, Мексике и Великобритании браки между лицами одного пола разрешены на региональном уровне. Накануне Верховный суд Индии также признал гей-браки вне закона

    No it’s me pointing of that if we had more woman MPs then Putin could not invade the Ukraine. Also we need more immigrants; that way Putin will be scared of us. Everyone who disagrees with me is out of touch. And I have never been on public transport where people were speaking other languages around me and I have never laughed at a joke about national stereotypes. Ever.

    No doubt money will be funneled direct to acquiescent MP’s, so that the right policy is promoted……….
    Poor ole Ed, he just can’t do the right thing, furcked if he does and furcked if he doesn’t.

    It’ll be a tough one. Do they accept Blair’s ill-gotten gains (the price of which, no doubt, will be safe seats for any of his kids that want them) or do they go bankrupt.

    I’d be astonished if Blair would offer them a cent after they conspired to remove him in a coup.

    And Brown won’t give them a cent because he’s as mean as he looks when it’s his own money.

    jgm2 says:

    UNITE cutting donations will be presented by UNITE as ‘punishment’ for Labour not acting in a more Marxist friendly way but it is just as likely that UNITE needs all the money it can get to pay its bosses enough wages and make sufficient pension contributions to these worker’s heroes.

    That will be £1.5m Tony? No! The last I looked Labour were in debt to tune of over £23m. To cover Labour Debts and election costs, £25m may just do it!

    Thought Liebour was already bought by the highest bidder, the unions, is this another way of doing a bit of lobbying by the banks or someone selling something in the Middle East, can’t see it being Bliars money, after all he was only a Lawyer and MP then PM, I presume he comes from a family of rich people,

    Superficially ‘yes’ but a salary of 66K plus expenses of at least double that ie total package of 200K PLUS pension contributions PLUS index-linked.

    You try buying an index-linked 200K annuity with 1.5 million. You’d have to be 85 years of age and an 80-a-day smoker.

    So B.liar is using his ill gotten, tax dodging gains in order to be a back seat driver of the Labour Party and giving the driver directions on where to go?

    Miliband condemned B.liar, Brown et al in his first Labour Party conference and promised every Labour arsehole and his arsewipe that Labour will never return to the bad old days of B.liarism. Didn’t he receive a standing ovation for it?

    B.liar and self interested Mandy “vote to stay in Europe and make me mega rich” are back.

    How will Ed Miliblunder square at his next conference?

    Then there is always the opportunity of employing family to recycle some of the £140K/annum expenses – like so many of them do.

    Plus the benefit of slipping a slow witted relative into a quango (in the past they went into the church) – then it does look like a good deal after all.

    Strange timing for such a comment as that adviser to Cameron who got nicked for having the Tweenie sniffing films on his computer has, apparently been set up in a Dr Kelly style takedown. Reports suggest he had actually discovered quite a lot of “staff” and “members” inside No10 have a substantial amount of peach fuzz porn stored on their rather large hard drives. And we are not just talking about Clegg’s school snaps either. Some real high up names are involved here, the plan is for that adviser to either have a sudden stress related “heart attack” or take one of the famous MI5 administered overdoses before the case gets to court.

    It’s not about Milliband winning, it’s about Cast Iron losing…

    No one is convinced by call me dave, he is a liar, a posh twat, an arrogant millionaire, a liberal, flakey, and pro EU and pro immigration. He and his posh mates aren’t affected by immigrants bringing down wages, no, in fact cheap immigrant labour allows his chums companies to make greater profits.

    It’s not that cast iron hates his country, it’s more that he really just doesn’t give a shit about this country, he is indifferent to it…. He’s more concerned with staying in power and trappings of influence, rather than being in power and serving his country.

    His indifference and lack of any real ideology other than the idea to stay, is
    deeply unattractive to voters. The unemployed hate his poshness, the working classes don’t understand him and have seen their wages drop and kids remain unemployed, the middle classes see straight through his vacuous lack of ideology whilst their kids lose out on jobs, taxes increase and wages drop. The upper classes see the destruction of our armed forces and the EU interfering in the countryside and preventing the UK dredging.

    Either way, Cast Iron is deeply unpopular, while Ed, although he is strange, he doesn’t invoke universal hatred across class boundaries and age groups in quite the way dave does.

    The Critic says:

    Tone has no intention of giving the party anything. Pure spin. He knows Milliband will not be allowed to accept it. He will look like the injured party; St Tony tried to help the party but they refused purely for reasons of dogma. It will not help theor cause, which is what I suspect is Tone’s plan.

    From the DailyTelegraph James Kirkup Blog…

    ====================
    MONEY TALKS
    Who says Labour’s new leadership rules are boring? Me, for one. Still, the Unite trade union doesn’t agree. It’s just cut its affilation fees to Labour by £1.5 million. Shocking stuff, eh? Surely proof that Ed Miliband’s reforms really are controversial. But what’s this, at the end of the Unite statement tonight?
    It is not in the interests of democracy itself for Labour – the only Party which
    can offer such an alternative – to contest the election without the
    resources required to make the contest a “fair fight” against the
    parties of global capital and the super-rich.

    Bearing in mind the tight timescales in which decisions may need to be
    made over this next period, it therefore authorises the General
    Secretary to respond to any requests for additional financial
    assistance, beyond the affiliation fee, which may be made by the
    Labour Party…
    Hmmm. Could it justbe that, despite the headlines, the union will still fork over the cash?
    =====================

    ??????????????????????????????????????

    So who’s kidding who then?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
