Woohoo! This is such GREAT news. You must be a proud Kiwi tonight. 🙂
Oh I am! 😛 Although I heard on the news that it was on last night, I didn't know at what time specifically it was on Parliament TV, and I think I missed quite a few speeches by the various members of parliament before I found out
So throughout the whole day I was trying to find out at what time the debate was, then I suddenly got word that it was on Parliament TV live (I soon found out my TV wasn't tuned to it so I immediately ran the digital tuning program lol), so I rushed into my room, flicked on the telly, tuned it to Parliament TV, and was able to watch a good 30-40 minutes worth of amazing speeches.
Apparently the Marriage Bill was expected to have only 67 yes votes in the end, but after hearing so many positive speeches, some MP's had changed their original no vote to a yes vote. It was amazing to watch and hear. If I had a recording device I would have recorded it, it was truly inspiring.
I just hope and pray the Bill passes into law!
