go on cross the floor

I have been listening as I work today to the 'debate' in our Federal Parliament about the Civil Unions legisation in Canberra.

As I write this they are voting... and I feel teary.

I feel teary not because I want myself that much to get married. My relationship is strong and needs no outside approval or endorsement. But because I think I should have the right to. Because it would restore some of my faith in some of the ideals that I want this country to have...justice, equity, tolerance.

I so want one of those right-wingers to stand up and walk across the floor.
