This video from Britain says about itself:
12 May 2015
Caroline Dinenage, New Equalities Minister, Voted Against Gay Marriage.
In David Cameron‘s new Conservative government in Britain, the ‘Justice’ Secretary has said he wants to bring back the unjust, medieval death penalty by hanging.
‘Of course’, in this government, like in most recent governments in Britain and elsewhere, the secretary of war (Britain’s wars are far away from Britain, like in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia …) is not called secretary of war, but ‘defence’ secretary.
In George Orwell’s novel 1984, with its Orwellian newspeak, the ministry of torture is called the ministry of love.
So, perhaps it is not surprising that in Cameron’s new government the ‘equalities’ minister opposes equality.
From daily The Guardian in Britain today:
Equalities minister voted against same-sex marriage
David Cameron’s new minister for equalities, Caroline Dinenage, voted against same-sex marriage because she said the state had “no right” to redefine marriage, Pink News reports. So perhaps some people are more equal than others.
The paper reports that in 2013, Dinenage – the daughter of the TV news presenter Fred – told a PinkNews reader that “preventing same-sex couples from being allowed to marry takes nothing away from their relationship”.
Dinenage also voted against the marriage (same-sex couples) bill at its second reading in the House of Commons, the paper says, and was absent for its third reading.
This from Pink News:
In a letter to a PinkNews reader, Ms Dinenage wrote that the Church states that “marriage is in its nature a union of ‘one man and one woman’, and went on to say “the insitution of marriage is distinctive.”
She wrote: “These proposals were not included in any of the three main manifestoes nor did it feature in the Coalition’s Programme for Government. As I have mentioned, under current law same-sex couples can have a civil partnership but not a civil marriage and I believe that there is no legitimate reason to change this.
“Preventing same-sex couples from being allowed to ‘marry’ takes nothing away from their relationship.”
