Magda Szubanski’s performance against NO campaigners on Q&A was one for the ages
Magda Szubanski absolutely schooled Team NO on Monday night’s Q&A.
With just two weeks remaining before the postal survey deadline, Q&A devoted the whole episode to the same-sex marriage debate.
Szubanski appeared on the show alongside host Tony Jones, and panellists Anglican Archbishop of Sydney Glenn Davies, Jesuit priest Frank Brennan and the Liberal Party’s Karina Okotel.
Szubanski rose to the occasion, calmly dismantling each NO argument and backing up her statements with things Team NO hates such as logic, empathy, research and reason.
Early on, Okotel suggested that traditional marriage can’t be changed without consequences.
Later, Szubanski pointed out that the small number of gay people would have no effect on society as a whole.
Szubanski’s handling of the issue has been met with resounding support on Twitter.
Yesterday we got to see a bunch of NO campaigners fall off their chairs which you’d think would be hard to top, but seeing Okotel getting tied up in her own weak argument was even better.
The deadline for the postal survey is November 7 and the Australian Bureau of Statistics will announce the results on November 15.
