    And no doubt still some will question the legitimacy and democracy of the Bill’s passage.

    Not only is it rather touching, its useful to have this sort of thing on record remind any sore losers or grandstanders that this was a cross party effort.

    What a lovely, civilised exchange, both strongly united for the same thing.

    I think we should all contact not only Baroness Stowell and Royall to thank them but also Baroness Thornton as well as Lord Fowler. My concern now is the Committee being stacked with more in opposition than in favour of the Bill. I wonder who determines the makeup of the Committee, the criterion used?

    Another thing that bothers me is, when this Bill passes and it will I’m sure, why do we have to wait until the Summer of 2014 to marry? Makes no sense and not why the long wait? We need an explanation.

  4. Such cross-bench co-operation is actually very common in both houses. For example the way the parties worked together to kill Loughton’s sly wrecking amendment in the Commons.
