If Australia is going to have a plebiscite on marriage equality, how should it work?

Ryan Goss writes in The Conversation (2.8.16) about the desired form and legal ramifications of a national plebiscite on the issue of marriage equality.

‘In August 2015, the Abbott government committed the Coalition to a plebiscite on whether Australia should enact marriage equality.

‘Since the election, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Attorney-General George Brandis have promised the vote will take place soon. But does Australia need to have a plebiscite? And if we do have one, how should it work?’
