  1. I’m certainly no Cameron fan, but I salute him on this. He’s stuck two fingers up at the bigots in his party, faced up to the opposition and not given up on his convictions. Well done Cameron.

  2. I’m no fan of Cameron’s, but I salute him on this. He’s stuck two fingers up at the bigots in his party, faced up to the opposition and not abandoned his convictions. Well done Cameron

    1. Oops, accidentally repeated my first post, I thought it hadnt worked :P

  3. If this report is accurate then I admire David Cameron for his determination to ensure see this through.

    I am not (by a l-o-n-g way) a Tory, but this DC clearly has more guts than I’d previously given him credit for.

    It will be more powerful if he makes an appearance and faces down the rebels, to show who is running the country and the Tory party.

    In other news … police have searched Westminster office of an MP for a serious arrestable offence. We can only hope it’s Loughton or Burrows – or both ! :D

      Oh how we would gloat at that happening! I only wish!

    2. From your keyboard to God’s ears! :) *crosses fingers*

    Good news. I have more respect for Cameron sticking to his guns on this one. This bill will pass now that Labour support has been abandoned.

    Loughton on the other hand will see any chance of his spiteful amendment go down in flames, thankfully. I stand vindicated for calling him a bigot.

    The religious nutters praying away the bill won’t get the result they’ve been wishing for. Suck on that, Andrew Minichiello Williams and Sharon James and all those bigots of C4M/CI and SPUC.

      My view of Cameron has deteriorated when I thought it couldn’t go any lower, however, I truly hope you’re correct in your assessment.

    For me preserving the judicial iinstitution of civil partnership in current form (same rights as marriage, just different name) is an very strong and clever argument against same-sex marriage, not in favor of it. Maybe even “eternal” one.

  7. I’m getting frustrated as to what’s going on now, it seems this bill is going all over the place and the anti marriage bigots want to try any sly motive to jeopardise it.

    1. And you didn’t see that coming? Oh dear.

  8. A year or so ago I thought the Conservative leadership was going to cave in on this one, but it has all turned out rather well on their part. Perhaps Cameron will go down as somewhat of a conviction politician after all :D
