    Why all this bloody secrecy? What’s so sacrosanct about 96 loons signing a letter to the PM? If they’re not ashames or afraid of the consequences for their actions, why not release the names and be accountable as MPs to the electorate they’re supposed to represent?

  2. ‘He conceded “We didn’t win” and that equal marriage opponents would instead would be waiting to see what happens when the first same-sex wedding take place in March’.

    So what does he think will happen when marriages start in March? Earthquakes, floods, or maybe a hurricane.

    All that will happen is that two people who love each other will marry. There may well be some extravagant celebrations and no doubt quite a bit of media attention. But the Sun won’t go out, the sky won’t fall, animals won’t suddenly turn savage! Once the media attention has died down life will go on as normal.
    except maybe…….It will rain MEN

      If they see few marriages taking place, they’ll say…’see, we told you so, gay people don’t want marriage’. Or…..are they really that stupid to believe that the slippery slope will begin?

        We really won’t see the true impact of same-sex marriages until those in CPs can upgrade in addition to those who’ve gone directly to marriage.

    2. That is precisely what crazies like Peter Bone (as in bonehead) believe will happen along with the other Tory loony-tunes in UKIP. These people are SO demented and so literal readers of the so-called ‘good book’ they truely think Britain will suffer a hurricane, flash floods, the world will stop spinning on its axis and we will be visited by a huge, country-wide, swarm of locusts as soon as the first gay couple get hitched and there is a giant sing-a-long to Your Disco Needs You by Kylie Minogue, YMCA by the Village People, Dancing Queen by Abba, Go West by the Pet Shop Boys and It’s Raining Men by the Weather Girls

    Can they get their heads out of their arses please. Yes Marriage is important to a miniority in this country but next they will blame global polution or the last economic crisis on gay marriage.

    If there are issues with Europe then say so. Define the issue and a series of possible solutions. Then either have a vote in Parliament or ask the people. But educate the people. What are the ramifications over the next 50 years if we stay or go and any potential outcomes. Not so hard really. This is what happens in business daily. Time to sack some MP’s!

    Tories need to modernise and not live in the past. From where I stand the party leadership is doing a reasonable job facing the future. I am a floating voter.

    Gay Marriage needs just to be Marriage now and part of the fabric of society. Move on everyone please.

  4. For the EU election in May I won’t vote for UKIP and neither Conservatives. If we want our rights (especially as couple) to be recognised everywhere across Europe we need a parliament in Brussels with a majorities of european socialist parties (Labour for UK). They are the only one that have worked there for our rights over the last 30 years. Conservatives across europe are still denying mostly of our rights at every occasion they can vote in Brussels (including the right of a married couple in UK to be recognised anywhere across the others European countries)

  5. Surely not? Could they really be so petulant, mean spirited and small minded?

    1. Yes, this is Britain’s ‘nasty party’ we are talking about here.

  6. The Conservative Party has to flush out all the “Old Farts” to be relevant in the 21st century.

    Send these types to the UKIP/BNP..

    1. UKIP might well want them but the new British Democratic Party doesn’t. Religious Tory loony tunes need to put in a wingnut party of their own or preferably made to seek exile somewhere like Iran, Pakistan, Mississippi or Alabama along with all the other homophobic and biphobic nutters.

  7. The Tories need to understand that half their voters are over the age of 60, and that they have real gaps to bridge with the younger, more liberal voters. They need to address those people who are dynamic, mobile and open and not those who wake up every morning furious that it’s not the 1950’s anymore.
