I watched Margot James in the parliamentary debate earlier. She came across as extremely sensible, reasoned and balanced … unlike her predominantly male colleagues who appeared to be simply ranting. I hope that all pro-gay marriage supporters will make note of who these bigoted homophobes are and make sure they do not get re-elected.
After reading what seemed like hundreds of bigoted views by English m.p.s one could have be excused for thinking all m.p.s in England were nasty mean has beens , so its real good to have gotten that wrong.
I think it is a vociferous few who have made the loudest noises, and grabbing headlines in the process.
She really did give a great performance of a very well-considered speech.
Of course, most of the old bigots who are speaking against the bill are only doing so to appease the old bigots who elected them. These people are simply afraid of losing their seats. At least they’ll be able to go back to their constituency parties and say, “Well at least I tried”. I do wonder how many of them really are against equality ….
She was wonderful in her delivery and really nailed the ECHR nonsense that her colleagues tried to insert into the argument. I loved that she singled out C4M for derision and rebuttal. Very well done indeed. Thank you, Margot James, job well done.
It has to be admitted that homosexuality is an aberration, for the simple reason that if everybody was ‘gay’ the human race would cease to exist! Let gays live together as civil partners, if they wish, but their relationship can never be called a marriage for it is utterly unlike marriage in that one vital respect.
