    I genuinely thought this was going to be a belated thread about them beating Syria to qualify for the World Cup next year

    Australia haven't qualified for the World Cup yet. They still need to beat Honduras.
  • Strewth Sheila!
  • I read this as Ben Stokes being ruled out of The Ashes and as a result England surrendering The Ashes to Australia already!
  • Roughly 62% of Australians vote yes to legalisation of same sex marriage on an 80% turn out.

    62% of 80% is .......49.2%

    so, less than half of those eligible to vote & less than what the Leave campaign got.

    I hope they don't proceed with making it law, Ken Clarke won't be happy.
  • Short lived euphoria as marriage is usually followed by desexing
  • Pretty shocking that it’s only 62%, how thick do you have to be to disagree with it?

    Do you need an immediate answer ? Bunnings not open yet...

    No, more then leave got obviously
    So the vote was closer than the Leave/Remain one, it was/is only advisory and not legally binding?

    Looks like @stonemuse and @Dippenhall have got their work cut out again in trying to get the 'we don't agree with the implementation of advisory referenda in to law' brigade on side in agreeing with this vote and it's implementation.

    Good luck, chaps :wink:

    No, because the turnout in Oz was 80% against 72% in the EU referendum.

    This is brilliant. Putting a smile on my face this morning. I'm looking forward to the "pennydropping" moment.

    Surely, though, those that didn't vote can be counted on the 'no' side? :wink:

    Australians dragged kicking and screaming out of the mid-1950s. Great news. Perhaps they'll bring their fashion sense up to date next....

    My advice would be to take a leaf out of the Australian's large font picture book and not overthink it :-)

    Fuck those that can't be arsed to vote.

    All referendums should (& do) only count the votes actually placed - These are the people who have made the effort to make a decision.

    If you don't vote - you don't get a say.
