Thanks for your time. I noticed yesterday you told Karl Stefanovic you’re into short answers – is this the new style? No waffle?
The Australian Government today welcomes the final report of the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, welcome to the show.
Congratulations Socceroos! 29 months, 22 games and last night you’ve qualified and you’re on the way to Moscow and the World Cup.
Good morning, wasn’t it a great day and isn’t it a great day today to know that the Australian people have spoken. 80 per cent of them took the opportunity to have their say and just under 62 per cent said ‘yes’.
The ‘yes’ vote as we know was successful, and on the line is our Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull. Prime Minister, a very good morning to you and thank you for taking our call on such a busy, busy morning for you. Has this all gone to plan? Is this the result you wanted?
Aren’t you proud that we embraced as a nation, 61.6 per cent of us, we embraced same-sex couples and we said, “We respect you, we love you, we are voting ‘yes’ for marriage equality, for fairness and commitment”.
Yesterday there was love in the air, you could feel it. 61.6 per cent of the nation said ‘yes’ for same-sex marriage. Now the man who has a very important job for the next few weeks to push this through Parliament is our Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who joins us now.
Joining us now from Canberra is the Prime Minister, Malcom Turnbull. Prime Minister, good morning.
Oh, wow, wasn’t it! Wasn’t it just such a wonderful statement of respect and love and commitment and a huge majority for marriage equality.
Prime Minister of Australia
The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
