Lord Deben In Support Of

 “I voted against civil partnerships because they were a fraud. Labour told gays it was marriage and straights it was not.”

– Lord Deben (John Selwyn Gummer) speaking in support of equal marriage during the Lords debate yesterday in what, for me, was one of the highlights of the debate. Lord Deben spoke directly after and against Lord Carey and Deben’s articulation, logic and citation of the same arguments against being used in The Lords when the law overturned the ban on a man marrying his deceased wife’s sister (also apparently a decreed no no in The Bible) gladdened my heart in the way it hit so many nails on so many heads. Well worth seeking out if you can.
