Well, it's less than 24 hours before the MPs mass debate the Civil Union Bill in the House. Do-gooders and control freaks have been lobbying like crazy. I've spent the best part of the afternoon throwing out pro-CUB emails.
Act, the Liberal Party, are looking at voting 5-4 For. It's a pity new MP Kenneth Wang has sided with Muriel, Gerry and Stephen. Don Brash, a closet liberal, also looks like he'll be voting against the Bill. But until they vote, you just don't know.
Try the lazy bastards' guide to lobbying MPs at the CUB letter engine here. Remember, democracy only works if you use it!
