CRITICISM OVER ‘DELAYING TACTIC’ FOR GAY MARRIAGE IN AUSTRALIA
The opposition party in Australia says gay Australians “will never be allowed to marry” under the current government.
Labour says the Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s offer of a referendum for the the next parliament was nothing but a “delaying tactic”.
The attack comes as Mr Abbott faces criticism within his own ranks about how he’s handled the issue.
But he remains resolute in his position.
“The coalition has had a settled and strong position on this for quite some time” he said.
“We decided to keep faith with the position we took to the last election – the position that we’ve had for quite some time” he added.
