Liberal Marriage

I was chuffed to see long standing Liberal Democrat policy of equal marriage rights for people who are gay passed by the Commons yesterday. I’m sure gay friends who have civil partnerships will want to get married ASAP.

Hopefully the Lords will pass this legisalation but I suspect with even more fuss.

It was no surprise that the majority of Conservative MPs who voted, voted against gay marriage. They’re conservatives. Fortunately Labour didn’t decided to play silly games as they did with Lords reform. So it was passed 400 to 175.

Amazingly 4 of the Lib Dem 56 MP’s voted against this but with a pseudo free vote that’s not entirely surprising. Lib Dems love to be independently minded.
