Though the initial vote moved a bill to redefine marriage in the UK forward, the final outcome is all but sure. Despite a number of “conservative” MP’s backing the bill, Prime Minister David Cameron suffered a defeat as most of his party voted against it. A recent article comments on the bittersweet victory and the potential fall-out as the bill continues:
“Just a few months ago, if we had predicted this result, no one would have believed us, but our clear and simple message that these proposals are undemocratic and will lead to all sorts of unintended consequences has struck a chord with ordinary voters and now scores of MPs. We have consistently warned the legislation contains no safeguards for those who work in the public sector. Top lawyers, with a track record of winning against the Government, have said the quadruple lock is not sustainable and instead of trying to answer these questions the PM remains hell bent on ramming this bill through Parliament in a dangerously short period of time. Mr Cameron hopes that this matter is now settled. He is wrong. His attempts to distract those in his own party and the wider country from the fall out will fail. More importantly this is not the end of the fight against these ill-thought through and divisive plans.” Click here for original article.
