    Comforting to hear….

  2. Is the BBC news biased? 3 Jun 2013, 1:32pm

    So it seems like there are more of Mrs. Thatcher’s old cabinet that have come out in favour of equality than are agin it. I’ve only heard of Mr. Tebbitt voicing out against it. It would be a shock if he hadn’t.

      Yes, the BBC news is most definitely biased against marriage equality. Right the way through this process they’ve given huge amounts of air time to the anti-equality crowd, and virtually nothing to the Bill’s supporters. The only way you’d ever get an idea that the public are actually in support of the legislation is by watching the audience reactions on Question Time whenever it comes up in the debate.

  3. Excellent letter, clear and concise. I only hope those who might have been wavering will be influenced by its good sense.

    And kudos to Lord Fowler once again.

  4. I’m sorry to be a nuisance, but will there be an online webcam of the debate in the House of Lords this afternoon? If so, will someone kindly provide a link? Thank you. x

      This should link you to the debate in the Lords once it starts around 3pm.

      1. Thank you so much! x

  5. Encouraging to see ex Tory ministers speaking out in favour!
