Gay marriage in Scotland - one more response from my representatives

David McLetchie (Conservative) got back to me with:
I welcome the establishment of civil partnerships in Scotland which means that civil partners now have the same legal rights and responsibilities as married couples in terms of their relationship with one another. Accordingly I do not see the need for further change.

I didn't bother replying, but am quite glad that marrog and lizzieandari did so.

Sarah Boyack (Labour) said:
In the past three Parliaments, I supported measures to tackle prejudice, intolerance and discrimination in all forms, not only because of the impact on the lives of those who experience it, but' because it holds us back as a nation.
We are very clear - after introducing civil partnerships, Scottish Labour'is proud to champion this agenda to tackle inequality and to ensure that Scotland is not left behind on this issue.


That leaves one Conservative (Gavin Brown) and one SNP (Kenny MacAskill) outstanding. I am amused that a search for "Kenny MacAskill same sex marriage" brings up my journal 4th on the list.

You have one last chance to respond to the consultation yourself, which you can do here. It's over tomorrow, so you won't have to hear about it after that. Well, until the actual bill, which will cause either jubliation or extreme frustration, depending.
