Just heard on the ABC that the new Liberal MLA, Jeremy Hanson, has used his maiden speech in the Assembly to assert his support for a woman’s right to choose and gay and lesbian civil unions.
Hardly revolutionary, but sadly unusual to hear from the mis-named “Liberals”.
Now if he can convince the rest of the party they might be in with a show.
Lucky he’s got four years to work on it.
UPDATED: The report is now online.
- “I support a women’s right to choose, and I’m encouraged to serve in an Assembly where nearly 50 per cent of its members are women,” he said.
“I believe in advancing the rights for gay and lesbian people.”
