TONY Ab­bott’s daugh­ter Frances has de­clared she will vote in favour of le­gal­is­ing mar­riage equal­ity in Aus­tralia’s postal sur­vey. De­spite her fa­ther be­ing a lead­ing fig­ure in the No cam­paign, Ms Ab­bott has posted a smil­ing photo of her­self in a “vote yes” T-shirt. “I don’t re­ally care much for pol­i­tics,” she posted on In­sta­gram. “But I do re­ally care a lot for love. All love is good. Let’s cel­e­brate it.” Mr Ab­bott has en­gaged in a pub­lic war of words with his sis­ter Chris­tine Forster, a Syd­ney coun­cil­lor and mar­riage equal­ity ad­vo­cate who is in a same-sex re­la­tion­ship.
