The big news yesterday was that the vote on gay marriage to be held in Australia will cost half a billion dollars. Wow! But where did the accounting firm (PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia (PwC)which is a public supporter of gay marriage – take note) get that figure?
As an accounting graduate, PWC are embarrassing.it on $281m for the TIME OF THE COST OF VOTING (yes – the money you could be earning at work instead of exercising your democratic right), and $20m for MENTAL HEALTH HARMS to 50,000 LGBTI Australians.(yes – democracy and public debate causes mental harm – apparently.)
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
Imagine if PWC priced a general election? Most countries would be bankrupt!

But when you hear the NZ media repeat the $500m figure, ignore them.
