I was very pleased this week to find out that the plans to legalise gay marriage had been approved. All I can say is about time!
Now I expected many Tories to oppose the bill but I was extremely shocked to find out that many Labour and Liberal Democrat MP’s also opposed it and that the list included both my MP (Joe Benton) and the MP in Southport (John Pugh).
I just want to say how angry I am that both of these opposed the bill. I am going to be writing to both of them just to tell them how disappointed I am.

All in all though we have a cause for celebration! Let’s hope for rainbow themed weddings up and down the country!
