Gay marriage test, bullying case and culture shock for visitors

Issues with a legal flavour led the agenda. The Labor government faces a renewed challenge over the power of territories to veto ministerial decisions on gay marriage and euthanasia, while a Victorian teenager is suing her school over bullying. On the lighter side, a group of students from the Solomon Islands got mild culture shock during a visit to Lismore in northern NSW.
