Not everyone supports gay marriage.

Being an NSWNA member for many years I would like to state that the position of Charles Linsell on gay marriage is not that of a great many other members. Where is democracy when any organisation speaks for its entire membership on issues not commonly shared by all members?

Since when does sexual preference have any bearing on the care of any individual? Gay marriage has nothing to do with delivery of the best care to all human beings so why should any stand be made? And why should Charles Linsell be so conclusive that we all have to agree with him? He is entitled to his opinion, but let it be just that: his opinion.

Let's not abuse the power of the Union.
