  1. So the unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable, undemocratic geriatric home is continuing their debate.

    The house of Lords is an utter joke and needs to be abolished.

    I have no problem with the amendment to the Public Order Act which of course would or should allow us to criticise the uniquely hetero adultery of MPs and any Lords to expose their double-standard as well as blatant hypocrisy. Nadine Dorries, Bob Blackman and Sir Roger Gale and others including the state cult had better prepare themselves. They may have all bitten off far more than they can chew. As the saying goes, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Bring it on.

    I don’t understand why they have to wait until 3 p.m. Isn’t it getting near their bedtime? The Commons Committee hearings started at 9 a.m.

      To ensure that there are fewer people there to support us I suppose :(

  4. As well as the civil union proposed by Hylton, McKay has tabled

    Page 1, line 5, at end insert “and shall be referred to as “marriage (same sex
    couples)””

    ie to call marriage , same sex marriage for gay couples…..Thought they’d try to do that!

  5. The opposition desperately want a discriminatory and separate classification for same sex marriages, what they really do not want is marriage equality.
