  1. I look forward to the day in the (very near) future where we can VOTE for Ms King to be an elected member of our Upper House.

    House of Lords reform now.

    Baroness King ! Let her open and beautiful smile be THE STAR that leads This Law to the final decision ! Beautiful People of The UK !

    1. It’s great news, isn’t it, Helge!

      Oona King is right: it’s a momentous day in British history. So many British bigots are going to sitting at home watching their evening news and SEEING that the House of Lords voted overwhelmingly in favour of treating us with equal respect. That’s going to make a lot of bigots stop and think.

  3. Thank you, Oona!

  4. Well done to the Lords, and it shows that society as a whole is changing for the better,those that were against , well it shows that if Slavery was around still, that they would of been in favour of it (mostly )

  5. I wish she had been picked to run for London mayor, she would definitely get my vote.

  6. Thank you Baroness King – you are a true friend and a delightful ray of sunshine and a force for good in our corridors of power!

    I’m glad she voted for equality.
    But I can never forgive her for being a cheerleader for the Iraq war.
    She was voted out of power by her own constituency – and it’s a travesty that she is in the House of Lords.
