Quickie Link: New Australian Liberal Leader Ambiguous on Gay Rights
(Australia) - While Dr Nelson says his stand on Gay rights is a personal view and he'll be consulting his colleagues on any formal policy shift, he told the Sunday Mail in a wide-ranging interview yesterday he thinks it's a change in the law that's overdue. "I don't support Gay marriage, adoption or IVF," Dr Nelson said. "But I believe in addressing the social and economic injustices affecting homosexuals the length and breadth of this country." Dr Nelson is understood to have unsuccessfully argued inside the former Howard Cabinet along with his now shadow treasurer, Malcolm Turnbull, for the legal rights of Gay couples to be recognised.
