Illawarra Backs Gay Marriage YES Vote Win

The overwhelming Yes vote for Same Sex marriage will probably be the only time we'll hear the Illawarra's Federal MP's agree with Prime Minister TURNBULL when he says ' it's time to get on with it and get this job done.'
The ABS announced this morning 61.6 percent of Australians voted in favour of Same Sex marriage.. and that figure was reflected right across the three local electorates of Cunningham, Whitlam and Gilmore.
This from Cunningham MP SHARON BIRD: " Now the parliament needs to do its job, which it should have done in the first place and get this done before Christmas."
Whitlam MP STEPHEN JONES says he too can see no reason why the new law can't be in place by Christmas. " It has to happen and in fact it's a clear message to all those people who are trying to obstruct change, get out of the way, make it happen, the Australian people have spoken."
