The Australian government will issue a postal plebiscite (kind of a questionnaire for plebs) to ask Australians to vote on what the date is.

Dogged by claims of being out of touch, Prime Minister Malarkey Bullshite indicated in federal parliament this week that he would ask Head of State Queen Victoria what century it is. Members of the Opposition pointed out that Victoria died in 1901. Bullshite and his cabinet dispute this and said this matter was too important to be decided by parliament and required the electorate to vote.

The century Australia is using has been questioned by many commentators recently following the government's refusal to vote on legalising same-sex marriage despite the lead taken by advanced nations like Malta, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay and the Republic of Dnaleri (where married same-sexers are entitled to extra social benefits compared with boring hetero couples).

Bullshite's ruling Liberal-Nazis-And-Trickle-Down-Christian-Pedophiles-And-Wife-Beaters-For-Rich-Bastards government also wants a plebiscite on the same-sex marriage topic. The PM has repeatedly refused a parliamentary vote because "they do funny things with their bums and it might lose us seats in the marginal, redneck electorates, and I like my fancy, all-expenses-paid government house on Sydney Harbour".

Accused of being "a softcock" on this stance by opposition leader Bill Shortarse, Bullshite has remained firm.
