I turned on the tv yesterday for the first time in days and what was on but an advert advising me to vote no in the gay marriage survey. I don’t need anyone to tell me which way to vote I may be elderly but I still have an active brain that is quite capable of making up it’s own mind.
I can’t see anything wrong in advertising for a particular vote. Especially in light of the fact that the Yes people seem to attract much more publicity, and have been and still do, get so much publicity from TV personalities who are just as guilty, in that they are using their public profile to spruik their point of view.
Jay , I don’t know who sponsored the ad.
Salina, you are right. However I feel the same with either a yes or no vote ad or when anyone tries to influence my vote be it in decisions like this or elections.
I can’t understand the Parliament not doing a general vote and it all over and done with. When so many countries overseas approve of same sex marriage I again can’t understand the carry-on out here.
AND so much for TV people getting in on the voting act, there are a number of GAY people on TV and in the movies, but they all try to keep it very quiet , feeling it will not be really well accepted as yet
Sorry no Names, but there is a well know male news reader on TV that is gay, also one chap on SBS is also gay, there was an article some time back about him and his partner. How about the Australian actress that is living with the American midday program popular host. Plus there are others.
I don’t really care about peoples sexual preferences, its life and we are all different.
bettyh I was shocked to read of the long-standing newsreader on a commercial channel being gay to the point that I changed channels to view the nightly news.
I don’t view a lot of SBS programs but I think I know which newsreader you refer to.
