  1. I love it when parties work together to thwart bigotry, I bet those UKIP wannabes thought they were pretty smart.

  2. Keep going Maria, you’re doing great!

  3. Who would have thought a lady from the shires in twin-set and pearls would fight our corner in the Commons so magnificently? The world really has changed for the better. Well Done Maria!

  4. Hmmm, looks like the anti-gay bigots have been utterly out smarted…

    …and it’s a very effective government shot across the bow of the lords who, if they think that they can stymie this bill, they’re in for a very big shock.

    If the lords attempt to block it, I’m guessing an ivocation of the parliament act won’t be far behind and hopefully a complete removal of church of England bishops from the lords once and for all!

  5. I was chatting to my flatmate about this (we’re both Civil Servants in Whitehall).

    What we both concluded is that this was actually a Government-written amendment that the Labour party agreed to table because if the Government had done it, it would look like they hadn’t considered this issue (which they probably hadn’t) and would damage the Equality Minister’s reputation.

    If true, that is some level of cooperation – Just Call Me Dave might actually be real PM material after all..

  6. I am glad that she welcomes this but at the same time, when same sex marriage becomes legal, why would Civil Partnerships still exist or am I missing something?

  7. Maria Miller has played a blinder during this debate. Steadiness under fire.
