Broadbent will ignore possible plebiscite ‘yes’ vote

Member for McMillan Russell Broadbent won’t support the coalition’s same-sex marriage plebiscite regardless of the outcome. 

Mr Broadbent’s revelation comes after the reveal of a secret push within the Coalition party room to prevent any positive public vote in favour of same-sex marriage, by giving conservative MP’s permission to vote in parliament against reform.

However, this condition only applies if the majority of their electorate explicitly votes no.

At a recent McMillan candidates forum in Fish Creek, Mr Broadbent stated that he wouldn’t support same sex marriage.

“Il be voting against any change in the marriage act as I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman”, Mr Broadbent said.

Labor member of McMillan Chris Buckingham and Greens candidate Donna Lancaster explicitly state their support for same-sex marriage.

“It’s a matter of equality rather than religion. This is about justice”, Mr Buckingham said.

“Love is love”, Ms Lancaster said.
