David Cameron’s controversial plan to rewrite the definition of marriage has been branded “pure politics” by former Labour Cabinet Minister Ben Bradshaw.
Mr Bradshaw, who became one of the first openly gay members of Parliament, said that the issue was not “a priority for the gay community, which already won equal rights” with civil partnerships.
Interviewed in The Washington Post Mr Bradshaw added: “We’ve never needed the word ‘marriage’”.
Mr Bradshaw’s comments come as a petition in support of the traditional definition of marriage approaches 400,000 signatures. It is being run by the Coalition for Marriage (C4M).
Cranmer has done a fine job of fisking Mr Cameron's recent speech.
