  1. Hahaha. Bye bye!

  2. The rest that opposed it should go too, There’s no room for Church politic in today’s governmental politics

    Just hope he don’t get voted in by the bigoted views of those who still vote, since more and more people are becoming disillusioned with today’s politics due to people like were discussing

  3. Good Riddance!

  4. A Town Councillor is just a parish councillor, hes a nobody

    Good riddance to the old homophobic bigot and by the way, you won’t be missed! Ta, Ta.

  6. So that makes a shockingly high number of 1 heterosexual public sector employee that has given up on doing their job because gays can get married.

    Only 399,999,999 more to go before C4M’s prediction becomes true.

    Trying to control with religion. Now there’s a story we haven’t heard before. Get out, stay out.

  8. Let’s hope he votes for UKIP. A divided Conservative vote will have costs at the next British election.

  9. Well, while I may disagree with his views, he did the right thing and left the organisation that no longer hold the same views.
    On a related note, I hear the BNP are always open to accepting socially bigoted politicians. So not a total loss.

  10. We’re always getting the news that people are leaving the Tory party but in my fairly local newpaper/website (thisisbath) the Tory chairmen from that constituency was saying that although some older members were leaving they had much more younger ones joining as a result of Cameron’s stance on equal marriage.

    It’s strange we never hear the postives and are always told how unpopular this bill is in the Tory party.

    I think Cameron shouldn’t worry about these homophobic bigots leaving. He needs to moderninse and flush the trash out if he’s got any chance of looking like a modern, with it party in 2015. There are many straight/gay natural conservatives who absolutely hate the Tory right wing toxic social policies.

  11. “I put people before politics” unless they expect equality of course.

    “…I put people before politics..”

    Well, obviously not.

  13. bye you old fart – you’re living in a time warp

    Good… Goodbye and Good Riddance!!

  15. You put people before politics shouldn’t that be some people !!

    Good, that’s one less bigot in the Tory party to contend with, making Cameron’s job a lot easier and for those in support within the party. If equal marriage is dividing the party as C4M and UKIP claim, then why haven’t all those who voted no not resigned in droves? I hope more do and quickly replaced with more progressives. I know they’re out there. His resignation will undoubtedly be fodder for the Daily Mail/Telegraph.
