The ACTU; Our Brother Bill’s Keeper
Saving Greyhound Racing From Gay Marriage

Ged and Dave are worried that Bill is too focused on gay marriage when he could be doing a whole lot more on issues crucial to the wellbeing of the nation like saving greyhound racing.

“Look Bill” said Ged “we’re not sure it’s a good idea to block the plebiscite on gay marriage”

“Well look” responded Bill “a plebiscite would create open slather for every bigot and homophobe in the country to let loose with the most vile, politically incorrect and reprehensible rhetoric that’s been heard since politicians in our party used to comment about Kevin’s performance as PM”

“We’re very concerned” stressed Dave “that your continuing focus on this issue will come at the expense of even more crucial issues for the nation like rolling back industrial relations reform”

“”And everyone’s seen the video of you supporting a gay marriage plebiscite” said Ged

“But” protested Bill “that was before I realised the plebiscite was the straw that could break Malcolm’s back”

“How do you mean?” asked Dave

“The gay marriage plebiscite” argued Bill “is our best opportunity to divorce Malcolm from Prime Ministership”

“Well then at least it wouldn’t be wasted” commented Dave “because it doesn’t look as though it’s going help anyone get married”

“The Coalition right wing won’t agree to a gay marriage vote in parliament’ explained Bill “and that will piss the gay community off so homophobically it will be like the greyhound racing revolt all over again and Malcolm will then be so seriously compromised he’ll have to be put down by the Nationals”

“Bill” said Ged authoritatively “I have the distinct impression that if it’s a case of either no gay marriage or having you as Prime Minister the homophobic lobby would win hands down”

“What we’re saying to you Bill” said Dave patiently “is that while gay marriage is of the utmost social significance you’ve got to leave it for the ABC to pursue and concentrate rather on ACTU orientated issues like bashing the bosses, the banks and distributing videos of Malcolm trying to sell off Medicare”

“So what should I say to all those gay couples” asked Bill “who have been waiting for years to gain equality through a blessed union?”

‘Send them round to see us” replied Dave “and we’ll have CFMEU membership forms ready for them to fill in”
