Brendan O’Neill has suggested, disagreement in the Australian Liberal Party may be healthier than the forced conformity of Labor and the Greens.

On Monday night’s episode of Q&A, O’Neill said: “Labor and the Greens possibly have a more conformist take on [climate change, same-sex marriage, and multiculturalism] and possibly have even quelled any form of dissent within their ranks in relation to those issues.

“You try being a Climate skeptic in the Labor Party, it’s not allowed. You try criticising same-sex marriage, whether from a religious perspective or a secular perspective, it’s not allowed…

“If there is all this disagreement within the Liberal Party then that could actually be a sign that they are reflective of tensions in society,” O’Neill went on to say.

“I’d be far more suspicious of parties which had a very clear line on every single issue as Labor and the Greens tend to do because that might suggest that they are side-lining very important debate about very important issues.”
