Today's the day the UK parliament takes the first step towards legalising gay marriage, and guess what?, it's a Conservative proposal.
BBC News - Gay marriage Bill support urged by senior Conservatives
The telling quote from that article is this: "(Conservative Prime Minister) David Cameron has said, we should support gay marriage not in spite of being Conservatives, but because we are Conservatives."
This is fairly impressive to me as Cameron's party is divided on the matter with many on the more traditionalist and ideologically right-wing of the party believe that the move is both wrong in principle and damaging to their electoral prospects. The leadership believes however that this is a matter of principle and one that many conservatives find fundamentally compatible with their beliefs.
The bill is going to pass.
