Labour's Anti-Gay Marriage Brigade

Lots of focus, lobbying and abuse today for the Tories who are rebelling against the wishes of their leader and voting against gay marriage tonight at seven. However, very little attention has been given to the Labour MPs who are against the bill. Luckily LabourList have put together a handy list. They are  Joe Benton, Sir Tony Cunningham, Jim Dobbin, Brian Donohoe, Robert Flello, Mary Glindon, Roger Godsiff, Rt Hon Paul Goggins, Michael McCann, Jim McGovern, Austin Mitchell, Rt Hon Paul Murphy, Stephen Pound and Jim Sheridan. Plus there are three convenient abstentions from Alex Cunningham, Gavin Shuker and Rt Hon Stephen Timms. It’s right it should be a free vote and there is no way it won’t pass. The Lords is where the real fight will come though.

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
