What Dave has joined together, let no man put asunder

The House of Commons is expected to approve a new law legalising same sex marriage in a vote due on February 5. This is despite 11th hour opposition from more than 120 Conservative MPs — including some cabinet ministers — who backed letters of protest urging Prime Minister David Cameron (right on the cake) to abandon the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, which will allow gay couples to get married in both civil and religious ceremonies in England and Wales.

Across the Channel in France, the Lower Chamber started discussing the extension of marriage to gay couples on January 29. The bill has deeply divided the country but is likely to be passed in mid-February.

Ack: Presseurop

We all know that everything has a beginning and it is worth noting that on Friday 17 June, the United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution on the rights of gay, lesbian and transgender people that sought equal rights for everyone regardless of their sexual orientation.” The resolution was passed with 23 votes in favour, 19 against and 3 abstentions.  Now consider NWO and Agenda21 – I will not digress into the matter of politicians using any ploy, or adopting any policy, to garner votes – and work out for yourselves where this same-sex marriage proposal thingy came from. Chris Grayling may well ordain that it is acceptable for parents to smack their children (without leaving a mark – natch) but just wait a few years until this enters our legislation – as it surely will, with or without the assistance of our fake-charities.

And we are a free people in a sovereign nation?

Just asking……….

  1. Putting the rights and wrongs of gay marriage aside, I find it extremely curious that it turned up on the legislative agenda of several “sovereign” nations all at the same time.

    I should also find it curious that the press seem not to be curious about this fact, but I have since ceased to be surprised at their ability to miss what sits right in front of their eyes.

      Odd is it not – not.

      A lot of people thought it was curious that Cameron should spring this, apparently from nowhere, and similar things would be happening in other countries.

      Richard North has fingered it.


      It isn’t really from the EU.

      The real mitivation seems to be that the UK chaired the Council of Europe and the gay marriage mularky was a statement of intent (largely a French/Dutch initiative) put out under its watch.

      This is taken to have the force of a treaty and Cameron is going through all this rather than be seen as a bad egg by his international colleagues, whose good opinion he obviously values more than the views of the people of the UK.

      As for the dead tree press, s0 much for their powerful reputation for the truth, in this and much else.

      What was The Times’ old slogan, “We have a tooth for the truth and an eye for a lie”. Ha ha bloody ha!
