    Yvette Cooper’s speech was absolutely brilliant. I actually clapped after she finished!

  2. I love it! Today for the first time in MONTHS there’s only a few comments attached to each article on the front page of PinkNews because, like me, many readers are glued to the live debate on BBC Parliament!

    Isn’t it gripping! It’s like watching a good political gay film!

    Stephen Gilbert’s speech was splendid, I think. With, so far, Sir Roger Gale providing the worst exhibition of antediluvian bigotry.

      For the Yanks that are trying to follow this, assuming the vote today goes well, what is the path that would be taken for marriage equality to become law in Great Britain, and how long might it take?

  3. Perhaps we should refer to those voting against as “The Magdelenes” in memory of the thousands of women forced to work in Magdelene laundries for years, by you know who?
    After all some of those voting against will be lifelong psychological slaves.

    Oh, how I wish we had people such as her in our congress!!!

    I stood up and applauded her wonderful, touching speech. Well done, Yvette and thank you. Thanks also to your husband.

    Sir Roger Gale came across as the vicious old bigot that he is. I was hoping someone would raise the issue of his three marriages. Edward Leigh of course, no surprise there. I wonder if that anti-equal marriage gay constituent in a CP who contacted him is actually gay? I’ve always suspected that some of those allegedly gay people who signed the C4M petition were straight? pretending to be gay.

    1. I’m convinced that that has happened numerous times, especially in the comments section of the Mail and similar.
