    Maria Miller et al need to revisit our bill and amend it to reflect the further measures the Scottish bill has taken. I don’t see how this can be avoided let alone ignored for much longer, in addition to humanist weddings. Very few if any other marriage equality country has gone as far as the Scottish bill. The model to emulate for the rest of the world. Ours is deeply flawed.

    1. Hopefully the current or next UK government will fix the problems of the English/Welsh legislation. The fact Scotland has got it right will hopefully spur them on.
      I think it’s great that trans people were recognised in the Scottish bill. I put it down to MSPs actually listening to groups such as the STA who gave evidence. I’m often not slow to criticise politicians and governments when they get it wrong, but they really did get it right this time! I’ve heard other people who are knowledgeable on this subject say that the Scottish legislation is amongst the most progressive in the world, so hopefully it will serve as a blueprint for other countries.

    Still a long way to go for the Ts and Is, but this Bill finally brings them to the top table. Things are definitely changing and not before time.
