Abbott government faces rebellion over race hate law changes
British Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Attorney-General George Brandis are reportedly facing strong opposition from coalition MPs over race hate law changes.
The coalition MPs are secretly drafting an alternative proposal for changes to the race hate laws.
According to Sydney Morning Herald, NSW backbencher David Coleman, who has a law degree, is understood to be drafting the alternative proposal.
Coleman is backed by a rebel group of backbenchers who are pushing for the overturning of the controversial law changes proposed by Abbott and Senator Brandis.
While the backbenchers are keenly aware that the proposed law changes are opposed by a powerful coalition of ethnic and religious groups, the issue has united leaders from Australia's indigenous, Chinese, Jewish, Armenian, Arab, Korean, Greek, Vietnamese and Sikh communities, all of them calling for the Abbott government's exposure draft to be scrapped, the report adds.
