A step in the right direction

It is good news that the Australian Labour government has finally recognized that de facto same sex couples should have the same rights as de facto opposite-sex couples. In essence the legislative reform states a gay couple is no different than a heterosexual couple. Unfortunately Kevin Rudd falls short of recognizing same-sex marriages. Nonetheless it is a big step in the right direction.

Perhaps Maltese-Australians can tell their natives back in Malta that placing same-sex couples on an equal footing is not the end of the world.
