Chris Bryant MP To Introduce Marriage Equality 10 Minute Rule Bill

Chris Bryant has announced on Twitter that he will introduce a bill under the Ten Minute Rule on the 30th October 2012 called The Marriage and Civil Partnership Bill.

Details are scarce on what will actually be proposed but it can only be a good positive way of getting marriage equality into the news rather the usual anti-equality hi-jinks. Even though Ten Minute Rule bills have next to no chance of success, I wish him luck in getting it on to the agenda. Let's hope it is also more wide-ranging than the Government proposals.

To avoid coming across as a total hypocrite, yes I do have an issue with Chris Bryant's previous stance on marriage equality. But one does have to let things go at some point, I suppose.

If you feel benevolent and particularly generous, this writer always appreciates things bought for him from his wishlist

See if Bryant wants to do something positive good for him.

Although it'll be awkward when his party votes for it and against Cleggs upcoming bill.

What I do oppose is when a recent lib dem blogger called him a long champion of equality. That he is certainly not.
