    Yes, hard work seems to have paid off. Feels good. But we in the South West have some work still to do.
    One of our pro-gay (usually) MPs, Richard Younger Ross (who I hear is a Catholic), tabled an EDM on the subject. Against our equal rights -

    Unsurprisingly it was quickly signed by those whose opposition to our rights has been a constant - Jim Dobbin, Colin Breed, Gary Streeter, but to have three signatures in the 8 total coming from SW MPs is cause for concern.
