I know Nick Clegg and his wretched little political party holds the vast majority of the people of Britain in contempt but this is just too good.
Awwww Cleggy Weggy, someone’s disagreed with you, they must be unreasonable, prejudiced and nasty, it couldn’t possibly be that they have very real concerns about your radical and massively unpopular social agenda and a deep desire to protect the institution of marriage, could it Cleggy???
As I’ve said before on this blog, I am bi-sexual (amongst other things), but gay marriage is not a civil right.
