Queerty is better as a member
The only reason they’re getting this much resistance is because of our ridiculous cultural bias towards the church of England, with them having dozens of representative, while us atheists, the moral intelligent majority of our nation don’t even get one lord or say.
This isn’t even an issue, except to the pig headeds, same as America.
This doesn’t mean anything. I looked at the list of 118 (not 121) of Tory MPs who say they are voting no, but there are some on the list, an erroneous one at that, who will be voting yes. Typical Telegraph and Hate Mail spin, no facts.
So what, who cares if they vote against it, it will still win. A whipped vote for Labour and Liberal Democrats, roughly 311 votes right there and only 326 needed to pass, plus 187 or more Tories voting yes. 118 or 121 is not a large or significant number either to worry about.
At least we’re not seeing demonstrations against it as we’ve seen in France where opposition is a lot more vocal and physical. There hasn’t been one country where marriage equality is legal that fierce opposition hasn’t ensued. It was expected and this too is no different. A storm in a tea cup in the UK case.
@alexoloughlin: Agreed. This measure is guaranteed to pass with the two massive other parties that Queerty failed to mention being centre-left and hugely supportive as well as a large number, but not all, of Conservative MP’s, including my one! No public demonstrations of the sort that have occurred in France have happened either. Most people are generally supportive/indifferent.
