    Well said Billy. Thank you. Is there any campaign organised to lobby MSPs?

      You can contact all your MSPs to support equal marriage here (option 2):

      There will be a more specific campaign a little closer to the first vote in the Scottish Parliament, which we expect to be in November.

    Thanks Billy – We sure appreciate your support. Having just managed to get it in England I cannot express well enough how good it feels and I want this for my niece in Scotland as well as all other gay people. It only affects a minority of people but a significant percentage and one life lived a lie is one too many.

    Let people be.

  3. Great to hear another public figure speaking up.

    NB: In the film versions of ‘Lord of the Rings’; his character ‘Peregrine Took’; and Dominic Monaghan’s ‘Merry’; were thought by some to be almost a ‘gay couple’ !!

  4. Billy who ? Public figure ? We’ve had Michelle (failed pop ‘star’)McManus waffling on with the pseudo ‘marriage’ script supplied by the homo-lobby ,who’s next the Krankies ?
