‘Nothing to do with marriage equality’: alleged Tony Abbott attacker speaks out | Australia news | The Guardian

Abbott told Sky News the man who allegedly attacked him told him “you deserve it because of what you have been saying”.He linked the attack to what he described as “a lot of bullying in the campaign” by those advocating a “yes” vote.“I think pretty clearly this bloke wanted to make his contribution to the current debate and instead of doing it respectfully he did it through a little bit of politically motivated violence, or attempted violence,” Abbott said.But the network quoted an advisor to Abbott saying the attacker had not specifically mentioned same-sex marriage.
