Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
""Don, the Labour leadership elections, and the wheeze to put same sex marriage in their NEXT manifesto, came AFTER the last election.
Not one single party went in to the last election with the remotest suggestion to voters that they planned, never mind were "DETERMINED", to push through any change in the ancient definition of marriage.""

Well Keith, if you recall, the election to leadership of Ed Milliband predated the General Election.

Now, try very hard to get your head round this:

""During the Labour Party (UK) leadership election, 2010, all the leadership candidates endorsed same-sex marriage as Labour Party policy.""

They endorsed it as policy and went into the General Election with that firmly established.

The voters, who you claim were unaware of this must, like you, have been asleep at the time, if you are right.

It was all done in a blaze of pre-election publicity.

Your problem is that your memory is terminally selective, and only supplies you with what you WISHwere true.
