Poll Shows 3 in 4 MPs Oppose SSM, Most Conservative Voters Do Too

 

The UK Christian Institute:

A poll of MPs shows that most voters who write to them about the plans to redefine marriage are opposed to the measure.

The poll also shows that eight out of ten MPs want the freedom to vote according to their conscience.

And only one in four MPs think the Government should redefine marriage “irrespective” of the public opposition in the official consultation on the issue.

... Colin Hart of the Coalition for Marriage said: “This poll will make uncomfortable reading for David Cameron and Nick Clegg, who continue to want to force through these undemocratic proposals regardless of what those who elected them say.

“It shows a growing sense of unease at the way redefining marriage is being handled, not least how the concerns of ordinary people have been ignored.”
