The Australian Labor Party has slammed Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s offer of going for a plebiscite on same sex marriage next year, saying that it was nothing but a “delaying tactic”, and added that gay Australians will never be able to marry under a Conservative Party government.

According to the BBC, Abbott is also facing criticism from within his party over the issue.

Abbott blocked a free vote for government MPs on any bills related to gay marriage, saying the issue should be put to the people after the next election.

Labor leader Bill Shorten called on all coalition MPs in favour of same sex marriage to keep lobbying the prime minister.
