Parliament 2nd reading Gay Marriage Bill

Watching debate live, pinching myself - doesn't seem that that long ago I was marching against Clause 28... Feel strangely optimistic, not only will we get equal marriage for all but maybe as a by product the conversative party will implode and its traditional homecounties support desert it. It can't get better than that!

However, the continued demonisation of the sick and the disabled and others who need to claim any sort of help to exist continues, and although I want and support equal marriage, it's a bit of sleight of hand away from all the savage cuts to the disabled, sick and vulnerable, isn't it?
