    Most of Mr Hayes constituents would have been against fox-hunting, but he wants to repeal the ban. Nobody wanted VAT increases, but he did, A lot of people would be against spending £100billion over the next 10 years on Trident nuclear weapons, but he’s for it.

    This is NOT about marriage – he’s a homophobe

    He’s voted against ALL equality legislation, not just some, ALL, including Civil Partnerships.

  2. Well done her!

  3. What a great thing to do – and how splendid that she got a positive result. No doubt he will undermine her efforts as he seems committed to his homophobia..

      Indeed. Even if she’d gathered 3,000 signatures, it wouldn’t make any difference to Hayes. He’s a shill for the bigoted religious nutters. Like all of them, he’s unable to distinguish between civil and religious. I’d like him to explain how a gay couple marrying in a registrar’s office is going to impact his or anybody else marrying in a church? I’ve not seen one shred of evidence now that there are 11 countries where we can marry.

      As for his ludicrous statement that there is a link that could be made between the roots of many of Britain’s “social problems” and “a decline in marriages as well as an increase in divorces” needs to be supported by factual evidence since these trends have been occurring for the past 30 years,long before CPs were a blip on the radar, let alone equal marriage legislation that hasn’t even been passed. So in his distorted pea sized brain, he believes that gay people cause straight people to commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage?

  4. Her fat old idiot MP John Hayes claimed that there was only one gay in his constituency, a ‘cap who runs one of the local restaurants, wears flowery shirts’ and also claimed that he had NO lesbians in his constituency!

    I shit you not! I heard him say it with my own two ears!

    Now if every gay man and woman did the same, perhaps some of the hateful rhetoric coming from the opposition might abate. Good for Suzi.

    What is it lately with all these Tories voting no? Why aren’t we hearing from our supporters? Does this mean equal marriage is dead on arrival in the House? I’ve not heard one positive statement from an MP in weeks, other than Lynne Featherstone’s response to the religious nutters.

    It seems that almost all of the anti equal marriage rhetoric is getting much more vigorous and hateful than ever before and virtually all of it is coming from the Tories and their religious hatemongers who are getting broad media coverage to the exclusion of any supporters.

    Why doesn’t the Archbishop of Wales and others of his ilk counter Nichols’ spiteful commentary if he’s so offended by the quadruple lock? As they say, silence gives consent.

    Clearly he will not ever change his opinion. Nothing but a racist homophobic bigoted religious zealot and nationalist. The NF is more the place for him.

  7. Well done Suzi!

  8. Well done! nice going
