    Maria Eagle will be a great equalities minister, and continue Labour’s mission to deliver LGBT equality. These are good appointments for a government continuing to be committed to equal rights. The wealth of committed talent makes the Tories attempts to pretend to be gay-friendly a very unfunny joke.
