Tim Wilson MP and Andrew Hastie MP sat down to have a chat about same-sex marriage.

After articulating their own views on the issue (Wilson is for a change in the definition of marriage, Hastie is against it), they are asked to explain each other’s view, and identify the points at which they find the other’s argument compelling.
Wilson says, “You can disagree without being disagreeable. You can come to common positions or differing positions and recognise that they’re legitimate and deeply held.”
