        Yeah, Brian Souter will be along shortly for a good whinge about it, as soon as he finds a bus or train that doesn’t break down all the time.

      Oh, ArchbishopTartaglia will probably have something to say about it, although since Pope Francis took over from Ratzinger, there’s been a softening in the hierarchy’s usual hateful rhetoric and in some instances, silence since his meeting with Welby.

  2. Fantastic!

  3. Humanists can already marry opposite-sex couples in Scotland, so it’s hardly surprising that the bill allows them to marry same-sex couples too.

    This bill also seems to have a “spousal veto” provision for gender recognition certificate. I wonder if the Scottish government is any more willing to reconsider this than the UK government.

  4. This is good, no ‘great’ news. Please let Australia be next.

  5. This should pass with no bother at all as most MSPs are all for it…great news for Scotland….we have had the objecters but as usual they will lose

  6. Great,with the Irish republic moving towards making changes (sadly subject to an unavoidable but unwanted referendum), this will further isolate the political toilet that is Northern Ireland’s ruling party.

    No House of Lords to contend with and a much better system,quicker and more efficient in my view than the tediously unnecessary system we have south of the border. Good for Scotland!

  8. when is this likely to become law?
