Scotland Votes for Marriage Equality

Scotland has now joined England and Wales in adopting marriage equality. Northern Ireland isn't tabling any motions just now, so that leaves a bit of a gap in the UK line-up, but one that will likely be filled in eventually, perhaps sooner than you might think.

In the midst of this all, it strikes me that at least some American conservatives opposed to marriage equality must find it a tad irksome that they are standing against much of the free world and with Vladimir Putin's Russian state.

I'd say, "strange bedfellows," but what they get up to in bed is none of my business.

BTW, isn’t GB the name of the larger island, whereas the UK would cover all four countries in the union on both the islands of Great Britian and Ireland?

Thanks, Bro David. Quite right about the GB slip... I've corrected to UK.

...and then there's the British Isles, which includes Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man too.

Indeed so. Let's not forget the Channel Islands. They have a good deal of legal autonomy, so they are not covered by the Act of Parliament, as is also the case with those other islands, the Falklands. Perhaps some day...
