final vote 464 to 38.

Quite incredible, under a Tory government. Over 100 Tories initially rebelled.

8O

I can only imagine fear of looking like a bunch of out of date self centered privileged arseholes overwhelmed their out of date self centered privileged arseholiness.

Still, a great result.

Sounds like this is something they should throw some sort of parade-like event to commemorate, but I don't know if they have the connections to organize such a thing.

I agree that marriage should not be a legal institution. But, seeing as our society is based around it, obviously gays should get equal treatment.

The post on SeriousStuff.org is interesting because it explains first hand how shit the old civil partnership was from a very personal point of view. Nothing about pensions or tax, it explains if from the view of a human being being regarded as defined by their sexuality and being placed lower than others. It's someone that I know personally and have known for many years. I don't appreciate people making a joke of it.

I think the joke is you spamming your site. Again. The punch line is you getting sensitive and defensive about it. Well Played!!

Revised numbers-
400 for
175 against

Not quite as good a result, but much more believable.

Are you only capable of useless posts? The person I am referring to has written an interesting post. If you are not interested, keep your trap shut please. To some this is a serious issue.
