Australian Resolution for Gay Marriage Flags for Lack of A Quorum


From The Age in Australia:

Only hours earlier the Prime Minister had urged the party faithful to unite and show courage in the fight for a carbon price.

In the first Victorian ALP conference since the federal and state elections, progressive forces within the party put up an urgency motion calling on same-sex marriage to be a part of federal Labor's national platform.
