Just happened to stumble in on Q&A in its last few minutes.

“we have to cut you off we’re out of time”
“we’re out of time”
“just quickly because we’re out of time”

“Yes I have a question about marriage equality…”

Show goes for another 20 minutes

:weary:

Do we always need the foreign guest or two on this show? So much cultural cringe on display here.

And always someone ready to give the naughty, white, “Anglo” audience a tap on the knuckles for being so “racist” and insensitive about whatever topic is discussed.

I realise the left loves this kind of sadism, but it’s really quite boring and dated.


#227

I mean, why, if she is an American national, does she even need to be promoted as “Chinese American”, apart from dog-whistling to the far-left audience that she’s not really American and is oh so liberal.

Someone needs to tally up how many Indigenous specials they do, and then compare with how many specials they do for Australians of other racial (and ethnic) backgrounds.

All Australian taxpayers pay for the ABC, and all Australian taxpayers should be represented in their broadcasting.

I think I’ve seen Marcia Langton about a gazillion times on this show…


#230

Didn’t they just do one recently for NAIDOC week?


#231

Yes I thought so, which is why this one so soon after seems bizarre…


#232

Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten is the sole guest on tonight’s episode.

#235

Sounds like a corker (and not just because I’ve heard of all five panelists)


#236

Lambie and Tony Abbott’s pro gay marriage sister. Yum


#237

I thought the ABC had told its staff to use the term same-sex marriage instead…?

In any case, where is the balance to having an advocate for the Yes vote on?


#238

I think Lambie is on record as being against SSM but will vote according to how Tasmania votes in the survey.


#239

Is that balance good enough considering separately they have an “advocate” for one side of the debate on the panel? Lambie is not exactly an advocate…and, to balance her views, the other two politicians on the panel, George Brandis, and Tony Burke, are for the Yes vote.

That’s at least a 3-1 split in favour of Yes…this is how the BBC stacks Question Time panels with pro-EU voices every week too. So transparent.


#240

Broadcasting from the new Southbank studio in Melbourne for the first time. Big studio

#242

Haha, no surprise this guy is a big drawcard for the ABC and this show, his far-left ranting and rambling on Brexit is seriously delusional.
