It will probably yield a lot more than government projections. You can bet the opposition will skew it by now claiming that marriage has been reduced to economics as a result of equal marriage.
Either way, of course its good for the economy, local and national as well as for religious denominations who are going to participate.
Meanwhile less and less people will get married in church because a) less people believe b) many people are turned off by their discrimination and c) the prices the CofE charge have gone up massively over the last two years. I think I’m right that it’s gone up about £250 over the last 2 years, thus, you won’t get much change from £1,000 for a 1 hour service, pricing lots of people out of a religious service.
It’s boosted the economy in every state where it’s been legalised in the US, and it’s obvious it’ll be the same everywhere.
The opposition had originally leaped on the absurd stupidity of Stonewall for claiming it would cost £5billion. But apparently they worked that out on a fag packet in the pub, so I think they may have done so after a long drinking session. Anyway the Government treasury said it was absurd, and now we have the figure of a few millions for all the legislation and training – a bargain. But the point is the cost is minimal and there are £££ back are more
Excellent, the good news finally about marriage.
Of course it will help boost the economy… it’s bound to as more people will get married.
It can only be a good thing.
.. and wouldn’t you think that hard-up churches, with negligible congregations, would be all-to-ready to receive some of the projected income? They are completely screwed by being so determined to hang on to their childish traditional concept of ‘sin’. They’ve dropped so many other ‘sins’ when they became untenable in modern society – adultery, divorce, eating pork and shellfish … why can’t they just accept we’re here to stay and that we demand equality. Then we could all move on and live together happily.
That’s True ! We will upgrade our CP to Equal Marriage as soon as, although we do not know how we will be able to do this. Do we have another ceremony or will there be a form available to send off with a CP certificate ?
And from a different perspective, I can legally become recognised as female, and stay married to my wife! Winners all around :)
Of course will boost the economy. In an initially small but growing way. You don’t need to be a Goldman Sachs whizz kid to realise that.
Last week we were told it was going to cost £4.7m now we are told that it will earn us £18m. Looks like this wise investment of money will actually earn the taxpayer a tidy profit of £13.3m. It may not go a long way to paying off the deficit but every little helps.
And if the don’t listen to common sense you still can appeal to their greed. The hatemongers will go down.
Thats positive enough when you look at the alleged cost of introducing equal marriage.
