Abbott praises PM on gay marriage poll

August 09, 2017

Former PM Tony Abbott is advocating a 'no' vote in the same-sex marriage postal plebiscite.

Malcolm Turnbull has won rare praise from Tony Abbott over the prime minister's decision to hold a postal ballot on same-sex marriage.

"Well done to Malcolm Turnbull and the government for making sure this is going to happen," the former prime minister told reporters in Canberra before outlining his argument for a 'no' vote.

"If you don't like same-sex marriage vote 'no', if you're worried about religious freedom and freedom of speech vote no, if you don't like political correctness vote 'no'."
