Dealing with the plebiscite

John Quiggin - An offer he can’t accept

JQ's suggestion as to how Shorten could best deal with the attempted wedge on Labor about the plebiscite (really, by a reverse wedge - but one which makes sense) sounds like a good political move to me.  I wonder if Shorten will take it up?

Quiggin's idea is nonsense. you are then setting up in the future to have binding plebiscites on any issue either side of politics wants to make it.

Why do you have a parliament?

But what is the sense of the expense and debate for a non binding plebiscite?

I think I'm saying any plebiscite is stupid.
