Shame he couldn’t be bothered to turn up to show his support at the opening speeches.
That could have been because, in accordance with convention where there is to be a conscience vote on a measure being introduced by a Secretary of State, he wouldn’t. I’m no Tory but let’s not be too hard on the guy.
Frankly I find the idea of gay people being so controversial that it becomes a matter of conscience rather than party policy to be quite revolting.
But thank you for explaining.
Fair enough but where were May, Osbourne and Hague. None of the top dogs were there at the beginning for even a few minutes to show support. I think it was a missed opportunity.
Go Dave! :)
Cameron has shocked me, and I didn’t have much faith when he walked into Downing street. But we’re very lucky to have a Tory PM like him. It could have been so much worse.
We’ve won !
400 to 175 :-)

It was a fabulous seven hours of drama, but I don’t think I want to sit through it again! :-)
