>Labour Leadership clones fail to come out

>Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Simon Hughes has said that by the end of this Parliament the Coalition Government will introduce equal civil marriage rights for gay couples. He rightly points out that this equality can not be forced on religious groups, who decide their own rules for marriage.


While the Coalition seems to be moving forward on equality, the lead clones in the Labour leadership race have remained noticeably silent, failing to say if they support this move. This is the definition of opposition for the sake of opposition. Surely a truly progressive party, as Labour insist they still are, should be backing such recommendations to improve an antiquated system?


I am delighted that these initiatives seems to be coming form the Liberal Democrats, proving once again their influence and principles are sitting right at the heart of Government. You can read about Hughes’ announcement on Pink News.
