Tory Peer: Let Brothers and Sisters Enter Civil Partnerships

Lord Lexden, the official historian of the Conservative Party, tabled an interesting question this afternoon, asking whether the Civil Partnership Act could be amended to allow siblings to register as partners:

“Is it not the case that in Britain today, all other stable and loving couples are now able to formalise their relationships in legal terms, so vitality important where inheritance and its tax implications  are concerned. If sibling couples are to be denied civil partnerships how does the government propose to address the injustice that will arise on the death of one of them, with the survivor having to sell the family home to pay inheritance tax from which civil partners are exempt.”

Top trolling…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
