Today is the big day – the vote on the Second Reading of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill.
So like a good dutiful citizen, I emailed my local MP, James Arbuthnot, about Equal Marriage. I got the following reply:
What utterly depresses me is the sheer arrogance – or maybe political calculation – that he doesn’t need to tell his constituents how he’ll be voting.
It just makes me cross he can’t say: Yes, No or Yet to have decided. Those would be adequate. But saying ‘well, check later about how I’ll be voting’ is just weak.
PS It’s not too late to email your MP – go to today: http://www.c4em.org.uk/
