The proposed plebiscite serves one purpose, and one purpose only- to delay legislation. We have already been told that our politicians do not have to honour the decision of the vote. For instance, 99 percent of people could vote against same sex marriage and our parliament politicians could still pass same sex marriage legislation. In the same way, 99 percent of people could vote in favour of same sex marriage and parliament could reject it. The decision rests with parliament not the people so why do we need to waste $100,000,000 on a vote that is not binding? The time for parliament to act is now, and not later. Blessings.
