The Australian and the Gay News Network reporting that Opposition Leader Tony Abbott had his Sunday night dinner interrupted by gay marriage advocates who surrounded his table at a Lygon Street café in Melbourne.

‘Abbott was dining with The Australian’s foreign editor Greg Sheridan when the protestors entered, confronted Abbott and began chanting ‘Tony Abbott you’re a bigot, gay marriage you don’t dig it’.’

The startled couple reacted to the onslaught in a relatively restrained manner, with Sheridan reinforcing that they have no imminent marriage plans.
