  1. Cameron hates single amd widowed people.

    He needs to scrap the grotesque tax allowance he plans to give married people.

    there’s no justification for this.

    I kinda see this as a smear campaign by the anti marriage brigade known as the Religious Lot.

    Cameron saw this through to the end, through both Houses with plenty of opportunities to cancel.

    He didn’t so here we are.

    David Cameron went ahead against many in his party and for that Mr Cameron will forever be in history as the man who made marriage equal.

    Jock S. Trap…so agree

    Further we need to be careful of the media as it writes whatever it wants with no understanding of it’s consequences both today and longer term.

    We need to find people who will write balanced pieces thought through who will separate themselves from politics and the man/woman involved who can show the masses the lightly repercussions of decisions.

    The Tory critics of Mr Cameron I appeal to someone out there who is knows to stand up and say…… Cameron is on a world stage..a statesman so please get behind him and ask for a route map going forward. Then give him some time to formulate it. (His team)

  4. Matthew d’Ancona is a former deputy editor of the Sunday and a Daily Telegraph columnist. They are both virulently homophobic papers that never miss any opportunity to run a negative story about Equal Marriage and gay rights.

    So it’s hardly surprising that he’s chosen to get some cheap publicity by spicing up his book with these sort of controversial allegations.

    1. Matthew d’Ancona is anything but homophobic. Maybe reading what he has written on the subject of equality for gay people would let you realise that.

      1. Yes, I did read his article from 18 months ago that GulliverUK highlighted, and I have to admit that I found it surprisingly reasonable. http://goo.gl/sv7hX

        But to some extent I judge people by the company that they keep, and being a former deputy editor of the Sunday Telegraph and a Daily Telegraph columnist isn’t exactly the best form to have. Perhaps he’s been told to toe the Telegraph line a bit more?

        So perhaps I should be charitable and assume that it’s just an attempt to get publicity for the book !

    I’d like to think that perhaps my tweet to him as well as others played a part in urging him to confirm or deny the allegation.

    Matthew D’Ancona needs to name the source of the bogus allegation if he’s going to refute Cameron’s latest statement. I just can’t imagine he couldn’t have foreseen a ‘furore’ by the opposing backbenchers during and after the consultation and subsequent months up to introduction of the bill in Parliament. I don’t think any of us thought it would have had an easy ride in spite of the overwhelming support at every stage of passage and none of us would have ever dreamed that it gained higher support in the Lords. An astonishing result which confounded even the opponents who were convinced it would be ‘massacred’ aided and abetted by the Mail and Telegraph of course.

    It will be very interesting to see how Matthew D’Ancona responds to this.
