Warren Entsch retires

The “100% heterosexual” MP from Far North Queensland, Warren Entsch, has delivered his valedictory speech in Federal parliament. Warren Entsch recently led a push by backbench coalition MP’s to ensure that same sex couples had the same rights as married and heterosexual couples under Commonwealth laws, for example with tax, superannuation and Medicare.

Unfortunately he has been unsuccessful. Describing himself as “I could have done more”, Mr Entsch described the push as being one of fundamental human rights.

I do not know what he could have done to persuade John Howard to allow the legislative change to occur.

Mr Entsch was able to build broadbased support for the changes within the partyroom, showing how to achieve practical change.

Vale Warren Entsch. You will be missed.
