Marriage equality report sets up another divided Liberal party room

A moderate Liberal could use the marriage equality report to push the case again -- but the Nationals and conservative Liberals are still lurking.

Many of the issues likely to get conservative MPs in the Coalition offside about any push for a free vote on marriage equality were not addressed by a landmark Parliament report on the government’s draft same-sex marriage bill.

    Why don’t this motley crew in government at the moment, just get over themselves?
    Anyone with more than half a brain between their ears has already done so, on this issue!!

    I get annoyed by the media doing the right-wingers’ dirty work for them, by implying they’d cause chaos if Turnbull chose to advance this issue. Would they really bring down the government over a social issue such as this? Ridiculous idea. Bring it on.

      That applies to so many issues on which Taclum is passing the soap & holding his ankles – he could tell the entire pack take a flying leap and do what he knows to be right.
      Wadda they gonna do, depose him and fight the inevitable by-election when they hold office by a single seat?
      That would require courage, principle and integrity which is sadly lacking on all sides.

    Why not simply remove the change in wording of the Marriage Act introduced by the Rodent which was passed in two days by both Chambers?
    The impetus to do so was the High Court decision that there was no bar to gender blind marriage.
