      Dave the Thunderbolt dodger says:

      The BBC keep saying most people want homosexual weddings,

      1) Most people do not. They are talking BBC and Lefty Luvvy Land.

      2) When explained that civil partnerships give homosexuals all the same legal rights as normal married couples then they see no need to re-define marriage from being the union of a man and a woman.

      3) Dave has no democratic right to redefine a thousands of years old common law.

        BBC - The Labour Party Communications Centre says:

        We want it to be mandatory that ALL UK people declare they are homosexual or lesbian.

          The Brussels Broadcasting Corporation says:

          And don’t forget, 99.7% of people want Britain to remain in the EU.

          Which is just as well. Owing to the fact that half of our trade is with the EU, if we were to leave, giant rats would rise up from the sewers and kill everyone.

          And don’t forget, more than 100% of people want Britain to remain in the EU.

            I’ve read that Blair gives Cameron advice.
            Was the gay marriage detour his bright idea?
            I can’t think of any other reason Cameron would split
            the Tory vote and waste time on when there are far
            more important problems to solve.

        >They are talking BBC and Lefty Luvvy Land

        Since when did the BBC give a flying fuck what the vast majority of non-Guardian reading plebs think.

        We are to be educated and informed – like the good State children we are.

        Like asking the N Korean government to question its people who should be in charge.

        Tom Catesby says:

        Typical arrogant T.V. pundit comment on Andrew Marr show Sunday a.m. (hosted by Sian Williams). On the newspaper review bit at the start of the show some woman whose name escapes me, connected to some self appointed, unelected body claiming to represent,’British opinion’, said that most people were in favour of ‘gay marriage’. Most people I know haven’t had their opinions canvassed, I’d be interesed to know what this bizzare statement was based on (a straw poll of the ‘gay’ bars of Brighton or the gentlemens lavatories at the BBC?).

    Guy Martin to win TT2013 says:

    I was greatly encouraged by the ultimatum delivered to Downing Street yesterday. Hopefully when the Bill goes through all the old tossers will resign.


  3. 4
    Lawyers Corner says:

    It’s is now inevitable that Gays will allowed to marry and the institution will change forever. Within a couple of years there will be test cases against churches who refuse to marry Gays in the European courts on the simple grounds that they perform a public ally licensed service. This will be followed by small B&Bs who will argue if the church’s are to be except they too should be allowed to discriminate between sections of the public they serve and do not.

    Like all policy it’s the what ifs which will keep the lawyers in business. This issue will leave the Tory party bereft of grass roots support at the next election and will boost UKIPs support.

      I cant wait for the first gay white wedding – now that really will set the cat amongst the pigeons. Cameron you really are a prat.


      • 68
        T'Old Fella says:

        White wedding was to signify a virgin female was to marry a man, now how many females marrying nowadays are virgins, note in the first part I said marry a man, how many men are virgins when they marry, any number between 0-5%. If gay marriages are anything like the male-female marriages, lawyers will be looking for a very profitable outcome, at least there will be not natural born kids maybe adopted kids though, it could get very, very sticky

      I love being shafted by Nick. If this was a leap year there’d be one helluva bitchfight over who gets to propose.

    Bugler Bert says:

    The trouble with Dave on Gay Marriage is that he has not thought it through: It is a “Pandora’s Box” he will open – the Law on discrimination……. there will soon be demands for sibling marriages; Sister/Sister, Brother/Brother and then from the non-gay side; Brother/Sister……….. Oh boy, what a can of worms.

      There’s a good reason for that – there is no demand.
      This is an EU project, possibly driven by UN Agenda 21 to hobble the developed world.

        What about sheep? Are they not also mentioned in the good book rather too often for coincidence?


      • 82
        T'Old Fella says:

        And how long do they last,1,3,5,7,12,17,25years about 33% end in divorce, one or the other see something more exciting over the fence so to speak. Many years ago many people did not marry but stayed together as a married couple until either one of them died, those that did marry the local lord saw to it that she was a virgin, but not after.

    If pervs had to pay for their own A.I.D.S treatments I bet they wouldn’t go round sticking it up the wrongun all the time.

      T'Old Fella says:

      The trouble nowadays is that it is passed between female to male, in Africa that is the case, gays are not very well liked in Africa. A little fact you lot might like to know, the first case of aids in the UK was about 1963 in Liverpool, a seaman came back from Africa and had a form of TB and try as they would , they could not control the TB the man died, and like a lot unusual deaths they took samples from the man and retained them. In the late 70’s early 80’s when AIDS took off, the team from Liverpool did some research and discovered the seaman had AIDS. I tha wants to keep safe keep thi sen to thi sen

    Crematorium curtains for Dave if Gay Marriage is approved.

    W.W. says:

    I have long come to the conclusion that dave is a thoroughly decent man, trying to do the right thing.

    I have also long come to the conclusion that he is utterly useless, and should not be allowed any where near any kind of power or influence.

    Being utterly usless he is still significantly better than Miliband.

    But we are all doomed unless some decent politicians arrive on the scene.

      If a 90% plus Roman Catholic country like Argentina legalised it why can’t we?


      • 53
        Gay Marriage is the LAST STRAW ISSUE says:

        Gays have got Civil Partnerships which gives them all the rights they need.

        Marriage is between a man and a woman, and is a bedrock of our society.

        A “marriage” between gays is not physically possible.

        Understand now? Or are you too stupid?

          restore the monasteries says:

          Just because other countries accept same sex marriage does not mean our
          country should just follow their decision.As for the catholic church,there seems
          to have been plenty of abnormal,sexual behaviour within that faith.
          Of course,we could have a world where “anything goes”,but we need some rules and morals to live by for many reasons….


        • 114
          Living in 96.98 percent white Merseyside says:

          I thought about 50% of marriages eventually break up and to say nothing about the number of partners who are unfaithful


    • 106
      Anonymous says:

      Marriage is the union between a man and a woman – that’s the dictionary definition. Derived from matrimony ie making a mother of the girl. It is not the union between two men or two women.Find you own fucking word for that but it’s not and it can never be “marriage”.

      You may as well argue that the sky is green and the grass is blue – it cannot change something that it self evidently isn’t. The good thing is, if this passes it’ll only be short term – with the demographic changes that successive governments are forcing through in this country then in less than fifty years I expect being bent will be illegal again. You’ll be lucky to celebrate your golden “wedding” anniversary, probably blowing out the candles in a “safe house”.

      Personally, I want to marry a bag of chips. I love chips, I should be able to marry them.

      And then, when Dave gets round to giving married couples a taxbreak, I’ll be able to transfer my chips’ tax allowance to myself. To say I should be able to do this is, frankly, discriminatory.

      And if you think it’s ridiculous, well, it’s not worse than sticking your nob up another man’s bottom.

    Modernity mistaken for political strategy. Where is the strategy in alienating your base and splitting your parliamentary party. I like David Cameron and think there is no credible alternative waiting in the wings unless you really think the soft-lad Boris is your bag but, on this issue, GAY marriage, David has got it simply wrong. He will come to regret this week as his Belgrano moment!


    • 27
      Please Explain what is a Belgrano moment. says:


      Belgrano was a bad day for hundreds of conscripted sailors and an Argentine Junta. What is your point?


    • 37
      where the blind lead says:

      Sinking the fascist warship made Thatcher more popular, most people supported the sinking of the fascist warship, the only sad tossers who wailed about it were the usual suspects who would have let the fascist junta have the islands, but thats the left for you, so mentally deranged they support a fascist dictatorship rather than their own people.

          Tesco's fake offers, high prices and poor service are NOT 'progress' says:

          Ah, yes.. another 15 years of having to work and earn your own money. How much better it became under Liebour, when scousers could sit around and home all day, sponging off workers, blowing other people’s money on booze and ciggies, and constantly moaning about that football match thing where some people got squished.

          And ‘Thatcha’ had a hand in that, too, didn’t she?


          • Living in 96.98 percent white Merseyside says:

            Population loss was one of the main results of those years. About 100,000 of us had to emigrate to Bournemouth and other South Coast resorts.

            We were about as popular there as the Bulgarian and Romanian Roma will be.


      • 102
        Mine d'Boggles says:

        I didn’t know a ship could be “fascist” – an interesting idea. Was the Belgrano a fascist when she was the USS Phoenix? A survivor of Pearl Harbour?


    • 61
      THIS isn't Cameron's "Belgrano Moment"..it's the moment he destroys the Tory party says:

      “The Belgrano Moment” was actually the deciding moment in the Falklands Conflict in 1982…it was when the World(and Argentina)realised that Thatcher was absolutely serious when she said that the Falklands would be re-taken.

      It made Thatcher immensely popular and enabled her to go on to achieve election victory in 1983


      • 134
        As More Correctly says:

        The illegal sinking of the Belgrano (an out-of-date warship from WW2) certainly was the deciding moment. Until then, there was a chance of a peaceful settlement – something Thatcher wanted to avoid. For a short war, far away, was likely to lead to an election victory at home.

        And the reply of the Iron Lady to the start of the war – and the likely loss of life? “Just Rejoice!”

      Gays pay tax, serve in the armed forces, etc. So why not equal rights? It could have been you or I that were gay, so how would you feel if you were gay, and what would you want?
      Gay people are human beings.
      We all have to look at the issue objectively.

        bergen says:

        Objectively civil partnerships create the same rights as civil marriages. It was a classic Great British Compromise giving the gay community the rights that they sought whilst keeping the title seperate , mainly to protect religious rights and sentiment.

        Cameron is supposedly an intelligent man but it is difficult to believe it from the almighty horlicks he’s made of this.

    Mr Bercow. Addresses. Mr Berrcow!!! says:

    The pair is both charged with perverting the course of justice relating to a speeding offence in 2003. They will appear at Southwark Crown Court this morning.

    It is alleged that between March 12 2003 and May 21 2003, Pryce, of Crescent Grove, Clapham, south London, falsely informed police that she was the driver of the car so Huhne could avoid prosecution.

    The events which led to the charges date back to March 2003 when Huhne’s car was allegedly caught by a speed camera on the motorway between Stansted Airport and London.

    The allegations emerged in 2011 after Huhne’s 26-year-old marriage to Pryce had ended the previous year when he admitted an affair with PR adviser Carina Trimingham.

    Huhne, from Dutton Lane, Eastleigh, Hants, remains the Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh and vowed to fight the charges.
