Text:United Future leader Peter Dunne has defended an anti-gay newspaper ad, for which the taxpayer footed the bill, as awareness raising. The party placed an advertisement in a Sunday newspaper attacking the government for "more pink think" in their bid to introduce civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but Dunne says the ad is not anti-gay and is merely to make people aware of the bill. He says United Future believes the bill is not necessary or desirable, and is calling on New Zealanders who share this view to voice their opinion to try to stop the bill going ahead.
