An 11-Year-Old Girl Just Roasted The Australian Prime Minister Over Same-Sex Marriage

Cassie Delaney

We’ve been hoping for some time that Australia would follow our adoption of same-sex marriage.

Sadly it hasn’t happened yet, and the country’s inadequate dealing of the death of a newlywed British man earlier this month has accelerated the need for reform.

The Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has responded by proposing a plebiscite.

The plebiscite will come at an estimated cost of $160 million. The plebiscite is basically a referendum, except, curve ball, the result isn’t legally binding. The government can make a decision to implement, change or ignore it, regardless of the result. According to Australian Marriage Equality, the last plebiscite vote, which focused on the national anthem, was in 1977 and it took seven years to implement the result.

Luckily, an 11-year-old girl named Isabella Mills is fast going viral for lambasting the concept.

In a video shared on TheProjectTV, the preteen calls the plebiscite a total waste of money and states that there are better places for it to go to. She continues to state that the public has made their opinion on marriage equality quite clear and it’s time that the government step up to respect their wishes and legalise marriage equality.

Come on Australia, cop on already.
