    I welcome the change in leadership. I still can’t believe both Julia and Tony were firmly against equal marriage. Tony is just scared that if he allows a conscience vote, he will lose all credibility in politics. Go on Tony, do it for your lesbian sister, I wonder if she even talks to you.

    1. I think that she ws a supporter of Gillard and that is the reason for the change

      1. Yes originally she was and Gillard personally was not a supporter of gay marriage. Nor was Kevin Rudd until earlier this year. However Julia supported a consience vote whilst Abbot forced his Liberal conservative party to vote against despite a more than enough of them would have voted with most of Labor to get it through.

  3. Congradulations!
