Some good news.
When Kevin ’07 won the election, I really only felt relief that John Howard wasn’t going to embarrass us in front of the neighbours any more.
But then he ratified Kyoto.
And then he said Sorry.
And I dared to feel hopeful.
But then, for a long time, nothing happened.
This news is wonderful – it is not just a symbolic gesture, it is a powerful and practical move that will hopefully make things just a little bit easier.
Keep it up Kev – there is more to do.
Like Relationship Equality for example.
Edited to add – it appears that this change only applies to lesbian parents. I wonder when men will get the same rights.
Edited again – Red quite rightly points out that this is NSW only. Of course it would be far too sensible to have a single system for the whole country!
