I heard a fleeting mention of this story on this morning’s Radio National early morning news. Initial reactions ranged from "Kaysar Trad? …. Islamic idiot!" to "Australian law doesn’t permit polygamy, nor does our culture. You want legal polygamy, then fuck off to where it’s legal". Sentiments echoed by a couple of workmates as we discussed various issues over lunch.
I googled for a news reference to include in this post. Second link from the top, after the Triple-J RSS link, was this one. I recognise the nom de plume from mentions on Troppo, and y’know what? I think I agree with him. I’m not sure what he’s trying to say in his cut ‘n’ paste post, but I get the impression he’d like to have written the same.
Who said ‘lefties’ and ‘righties’ can’t agree?
