A Labor MP has attacked the Coalition government's Senate leader Eric Abetz as an "anachronistic joke" in an impassioned speech recounting the story of a gay uncle who died of AIDS without the right to marry his long-term partner. Senator Abetz reportedly told the Coalition party room on Tuesday that not all gay men want to get married, pointing to the example of billionaire Italian fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana, who never wed. The Coalition party room voted by around 60 votes to 30 on Tuesday not to allow a conscience vote on same-sex marriage, killing off the prospect of the change being legalised before the next election. Victorian Labor MP Tim Watts, who is regarded as one of the party's rising stars, said he abandoned plans to give a more routine, impersonal speech in support of same-sex marriage after reading Senator Abetz's comments. Mr Watts said some members of his family, who were conservative and religious, struggled to accept his uncle when he came out as gay in the Joh Bjelke-Petersen era.
