Christopher Pyne's same-sex marriage bombshell recording

CHRISTOPHER Pyne has been caught on tape revealing plans to introduce same-sex marriage "sooner than everyone thinks" and boasting that the Liberal Party is now run by its left faction.

The leaked recording captures the Defence Industry Minister, a soft-Liberal powerbroker and close ally of Malcolm Turnbull, making the explosive remarks at an afterparty following the federal Liberal Council gala dinner on Friday evening.

"Friends, we are in the winner's circle but we have to deliver a couple of things and one of those we've got to deliver before too long is marriage equality in this country," Mr Pyne says on the tape, obtained by The Daily Telegraph columnist Andrew Bolt.

"We're going to get it. I think it might even be sooner than everyone thinks. And your friends in Canberra are working on that outcome."

Mr Pyne then celebrated the success of the left faction of the Liberal Party. "Two years ago … Malcolm Turnbull was the communications minister and now he's the Prime Minister," Mr Pyne said.
