Weekend Punch: Breathe out
It was a big week. Weeks involving fierce debate over gay marriage and multiculturalism often are. In response to the riots at the weekend, Penbo reflected on the positive side of Australia possessing such a laid-back culture. Dan Piotrowski told another story about relaxation, breaking bread with Muslims at a Ramadan dinner last month.
Stephen Jones, the MP behind the gay marriage bill, painted the bill going down as just a setback. In federal politics, Cory Bernardi experienced a major setback of his own - Abbott dramatically dumping him as his assistant press secretary. Our Tory Shepherd trained her sights on his creepy comments.
Finals fever revved up. We wondered when society can say not to have a baby. And to a matter of great importance, The Punch Team unequivocally said no, no, no, no and no. And no.
It’s the weekend. What’s on your mind?
