It is a big day for those working towards more equal marriage law in the UK today. The second reading of the Bill which would allow gay couples to wed in England and Wales.
I’ve been in touch with Ann McKechin my local MP to check she is supporting it and am delighted to report she is.
And this isn’t a simple West Lothian question either – I’m one of her constituents. If I wanted to marry someone from Englandshire I might well want to get married there.
Indeed, I might want to get married in a parish church there.
But we will come to that later.
