Polls show that the overwhelming majority of Australians want the opportunity to vote directly on changing the Marriage Act. It doesn’t matter if you are for or against same-sex marriage, Australians expect to be able to have their say.
- Millions of Australians voted for the Turnbull Government expecting a plebiscite.
- 55% of people who say they would vote for same-sex marriage want a plebiscite. Even a majority of Labor voters want one!
So why is Bill Shorten and the Labor Party playing games with this issue and refusing to back the people’s vote?
It is time the politicians in Canberra stopped playing games and let the Australian people decide!
