Queensland LNP allows conscience vote on civil partnerships laws

Queensland has at times the most extraordinary politics. Today Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg announced that the LNP party room has, for the first time, allowed a conscience vote on the proposed civil partnership bill. 

This is just a few days after the LNP members of the committee examining the bill sought to prevent any report being written about the submissions made and evidence given, including by me. 
The pressure may now be on Premier Anastasia Palaczszuk to see if she now allows ALP members a conscience vote.
If she doesn’t, the bill is bound to pass, even without the support of Speaker Peter Wellington and Independent Billy Gordon. 
We live in interesting times.
