Nick Clegg finds his backbone then loses it to gay marriage ‘bigots’

by | 11th, September 2012

NICK Clegg says opponents of gay marriage are “bigots“. Ooops. Sorry. No. He doesn’t. The missive from Clegg HQ has been withdrawn.

What a spineless tosser:

Date: 11 September 2012 15:00
Subject: Deputy Prime Minister Equal Marriage reception this evening

The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg will tonight be joined by celebrity campaigners, religious figures, activists, charities and politicians as he hosts a reception to celebrate the Government’s historic consultation on equal marriage.

Guests will served Ben and Jerry’s ‘Appley Ever After’ ice cream, specially renamed by the company in support of equal marriage and will be entertained by Diversity, London’s only gay, bisexual and transgender community chamber choir. The Government’s consultation on equal marriage was published on 14 June this year. The Government will respond by the end of the year.

The Deputy Prime Minister is expected to say:

“Continued trouble in the economy gives the bigots a stick to beat us with, as they demand we “postpone” the equalities agenda in order to deal with “the things people really care about”. As if pursuing greater equality and fixing the economy simply cannot happen at once.
