David Cameron: I get lots of invites to same-sex weddings, I’ll go to one soon
Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed that he receives lots of invites to same-sex wedding ceremonies.
The Tory leader said in an interview with the Mail that he was proud of his role in legislating for equal marriage, and that he still gets “lots” of thanks for the measure.
He said: “Lots of people have invited me and sent me lovely letters saying if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to marry the person I love.
“But I haven’t been to one yet. I’m sure I will soon.
“I’m not a libertarian. I believe in it as a man who believes in family and marriage. I don’t see why gay people who love each other shouldn’t be able to as well.”
The Chairman of Grassroots Conservatives claimed last month that Mr Cameron’s support for marriage means the party “has little chance of winning a majority at the general election”.
Bob Woollard accused the Prime Minister of “alienating” his loyalists and handing the keys to UKIP.
He claimed supporters were still upset at the legalisation of same-sex marriage, and called for new laws to “protect those who believe in traditional marriage”.
When asked about gay couples kissing last summer, Mr Cameron said: “No, that’s fine! I’ve been very clear about this.
“If I can kiss my wife in public, I don’t see why you can’t kiss your husband in public.”
