Greens To Oppose Plebiscite To Ensure Same Sex Couples Not Exposed To Discrimination

Greens Leader Richard Di Natale says the only way to ensure same sex couples are not subjected to discrimination is to delay indefinitely their right to marry.

“For years we have campaigned for equality for same sex-attracted people. So now that it’s becoming close to a reality, it’s important we take the option’s available to us to delay it,” Mr Di Natale said.

He said history had shown that politics was a game of settling on the perfect option. “As we found with the emission trading scheme, it’s worth holding out for the ideal option, in order to avoid a divisive, spiteful atmosphere”
