Jeff Kennett on gay marriage

Jeff Kennett

Outspoken former Premier Jeff Kennett has surprised many this morning by telling Neil Mitchell and listeners he has reexamined his views on gay marriage.

"I feel as though I've learned a lot...The most important thing in a person's life is to enjoy life...As long as you don't break a law against me, why should I allow sexuality to prevent you from living your life as you want to." 

"I want people to be happy," Kennett told Neil Mitchell. 

Listen to Mr. Kennett in the 3AW Studio below.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Jeff always learns something new every morning. He is a slow learner and things cough up ad hoc. He is forgiven. Only thing is that all he learned just drops into a black hole and he needs to learn more and forever. He is insatiable of knowledge. Yea. With such a block on the shaoulder makes you wonder.
    What will that be tomorrow morning? May be which cereal for brekkie cause he can't remember the one he had the day before.

  • You showed guts Jeff good on you, two people who love each other should not have to put up with the bigotry and persecution that has gone on for far to long, its time people stopped hatting and show love and compassion
    for our lesbian and gay members of society

  • Well the Gay lobby are getting their way by spurious argument and appealing to the baser elememts of human nature that the tenents of the Bible should be swept aside.
