Abbott acknowledges Conservatives well-positioned

November 02, 2017

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has acknowledged overnight that Australian Conservatives are well-positioned to benefit from the strong No campaign mounted in the marriage law postal survey.

The Australian reports today that "Mr Abbott said the political implications of the rise of a new 'loose' conservative movement and the lack of conservative ministers supporting the No case was that in the short term 'the embryonic Australian Conservatives, the only national political party whose leader backed marriage as it's always been' would be the beneficiary in electoral terms."

Further, Dennis Shanahan writes in The Australian today that "the Australian Conservatives, led by former Liberal Cory Bernardi, are benefiting from his headstrong opposition to the change."
