Former prime minister John Howard has refuted Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s contention that boosting religious freedoms could lead to the adoption of sharia law in Australia. Howard says Turnbull’s arguments along these lines are "just plain wrong", noting that state governments would have to permit the introduction of sharia law, something that is just not going to happen. Howard says the federal government did not handle the same-sex marriage debate very well, apart from the actual postal survey.
