Defence’s policy manual states:
It is pretty simple.
So, apart from utter hypocrisy, how can there be any explanation for the fact that Defence members will march in uniform at the Mardi Gras next year when the Mardi Gras is tweeting this:

And the Hypocrite-in-Chief is the Vice Chief of Defence Force. Right now, in the middle of a plebiscite on marriage, he’s got tweets up in his official capacity as Deputy Head Honcho of the Apolitical Forces of Australia stating this:
All the best to the good sized RAN contingent marching tonight in the Mardi Gras parade – diversity a critical enabler of capability.

Great to see our uniformed ADF contingent proudly marching in the Mardi Gras tonight. Well Done team.

The leadership of #yourADF is showing that its true colours of hypocrisy come in every shade of the rainbow…
If you want to express your disappointment at this, please sign my petition to the Minister for Defence, Shadow Minister for Defence and Senator Cory Bernardi calling on Defence to cease its support and funding for organisations supporting the ‘Yes’ campaign.
