One of the more unusual sights that have been seen in the same-sex marriage debates is the co-operation between the Labour and Coalition front benches. The leadership of all three parties support same-sex marriage.

PinkNews spotted a sweet conversation on Twitter this morning between Barnoness Royall, the leader of the Labour party in the House of Lords and Baroness Stowell, the Conservative peer with responsibility for the legislation in the Lords.

Yesterday, the House of Lords voted with 390 votes to 148, a majority of 242, against an amendment to reject same-sex marriage.
