Gays want no de­lays

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

GAY mar­riage sup­port­ers say a na­tional vote would un­fairly de­lay the change. Some Coali­tion MPs and con­ser­va­tive sen­a­tors are urg­ing a plebiscite on the is­sue at the 2016 elec­tion. The push comes af­ter Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten pledged to leg­is­late for gay mar­riage within 100 days in of­fice. Polls have shown 6070 per cent of vot­ers sup­port al­low­ing gay mar­riage – al­most dou­ble the rate of a decade ago.
