Civil Partnerships

odd to be in the lobby last night surrounded by politicians of all parties. Someone commented that even as little as four years ago there would not have been many Tories in the lobby so things were changing.

A review of Hansard reveals that there were still a substantial number of Tories voting against the bill. With a few exceptions (well known for their religious convictions) all of the people voting against the bill were Tories. The Conservative party still struggles with these issues and my belief is that until they become more comfortable with 21st Century Britain they will remain a party of opposition.
