Like many people, I was appalled by what Joe Hockey said on Monday night on ABC’s Q&A about same-sex marriage and parenting, so I wrote to him to express my concern. What struck me most about the events of the last five minutes of the show was how disappointed in himself Joe looked when his own words were spoken back to him. If you missed that, take a look at the episode and have a look at the reaction on his face when the man in the audience speaks to him. I don’t think it was his proudest moment:
I wrote to Mr Hockey to highlight this. I told him that I think he is a reasonable man, only trying to do what is right, however much I disagree with his perspective.
