Following on from the happy news that Ed Balls and Diane Abbott (both Labour leadership contenders) support marriage equality here in the UK, Andy Burnham (another candidate) has confirmed he has already stated support for it last month (and in an admirably strongly worded way).
Is this the most pressing issue to face the country right now? Of course not. Does it mean it's irrelevant? Of course not. Every MP who states support for marriage equality is another step closer to getting it.
This only highlights the poor choice of words used and the evasive way both of the Miliband brothers have handled this issue. It's time they declared their stances once and for all.
