Opposition legal affairs spokesperson Mark Dreyfus it’s such a fool because he keeps saying foolish things. The head of the Australian Electoral Commission has said it will take 29 weeks to prepare for a national plebiscite. The liberals want to do it before the end of the year with only 21 weeks left in the year. So Dreyfus says that the liberals did not consider marriage equality a priority and it was unlikely to be held this year.
That’s a very legalese comment to say two separate things in one sentence joined by “and” so he can argue his two points are mutually exclusive when really he wants to deceive people by suggesting that they are mutually dependent.
I think that makes Mark Dreyfus deceptive and a fool.
