And Tim Minchin has spoken out on marriage equality in Australia and the upcoming postal poll where citizens are being asked to vote for or against same-sex marriage.

Titled "I Still Call Australia Homophobic", Minchin's song is a parody of Peter Allen's iconic "I Still Call Australia Home" and pretty perfectly summarises much of the rage and confusion people are feeling at the moment.

Called 'I Still Call Australia Home (ophobic)', the lyrics of the song, which initially paid tribute to Australian expats missing their homeland, have drastically been amended.

"I'm always travelling but wherever I stay, people love Aussies and they generally say..."

"Some day we'll all be together once more, when they do their bloody jobs, and just change the f.ing law".
