    His face says it all! Disrguntled is an understatement.

    As for Fallon, well, he could always support the third and final vote in the Commons before it heads to the Lords. Let’s see if he does it.

    1. “His face says it all! Disrguntled is an understatement.”

      He looks like he may have had a stroke, if so it has possibly affected his mind as well as paralysed half of his face, it’s a disturbing prospect.

      A person’s appearance and/or partial paralysis from a stroke or any other disability is entirely unchosen – as like sexuality. To make nasty remarks about such a thing shows a disgusting internal poverty.

  2. “Mr Hayes is popular among Tory backbenchers in part because of his criticism of wind farms and same-sex marriage.”

    Sounds like he’d be more at home in UKIP

    Cameron may be taking gay marriage through the Commons for his own reasons but he still leads the most right wing government in modern history, that shouldn’t be forgotten.

  4. Narky little grammar school boy who will never be part of the Tory elite.
    Given a Tory safe seat as he would have had no chance otherwise.
    Didn’t marry until he was 41 – just saying.
    Tip: stop trying so hard to be something you’re not.

      Delusions of grandeur I think.

  5. You get the strong impression that behind closed doors most local Tory associations are absolutely rife with elderly bores in blazers standing around with gin + tonics and ranting on about queers, blacks, europeans, working women, chavs, bring back the noose/ birch/ empire etc etc.

    Some of the Tories are as bad as their USA GOP counterparts. Tragedy that they can still promote their medieval views.

    1. Posess thy soul in patience. As an elder American gay, I’ve seen the changes coming, albeit, more slowly than I’d prefer, but the fundamental rule is that, in the universe, change is a constant, and all the dinosaurs, both two and four legged can attest to that.

  7. What a peculiar little man; guess one just can’t get the staff…?

  8. He thinks the roots of Britain’s social problems are because of a decline in marriage and in increase in divorce? What? Nothing to do with unemployment, poverty, the education system, the prison system, etc etc etc

    And he’s in the Tory cabinet room? Oh ffs.

    Well, as ‘we can trace the roots of many of Britains social problems to the decline of marriage’ maybe we should have more marriage for everybody including same sex ! Sounds good to me.

      What galls me with these bigots is they say equal marriage will impact marriage negatively yet they’re the ones committing adultery often resulting in divorce by some in their own party, i.e. Bob Blackman, Sir Roger Gale (3 times already) and Nadine Dorries and I’m sure there are others. Yet they never see any connection between that and their hypocrisy towards equal marriage, truly amazing. I’m hoping that some supportive MPs muster the courage and raise the issue as the bill progresses. These morons need to be taken down a peg of two and confronted.
