Christopher Pyne is one of the leading figures in the supposedly ‘conservative’ Turnbull government.
Yet he’s out and about campaigning with the Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young and Labor’s Penny Wong. It’s part of a campaign from Liberal politicians claiming that legalising homosexual marriage will strengthen the institution of marriage and is in keeping with conservative principles.
All I can say is that if you claim to be ‘conservative’ but are campaigning with the Wong and Hanson-Young, you’re doing ‘conservative’ wrong…
Meanwhile, Senator Cory Bernardi has spearheaded the launch of the ‘No’ campaign.
This debate is not just about marriage. When the dust is settled, it’s likely the entire political spectrum in Australia will be realigned. And Cory Bernardi’s Australian Conservatives is set to be one of the big winners.
