Conservative party conference delegates discuss gay marriage

Here, Michael White hears the views of Tory supporters as well as protesters outside the conference.

From PinkNews in Britain:

More Conservative Party members support the death penalty than same-sex marriage

Most Conservative Party members still oppose the right of same-sex couples to marry, according to new research.

Academics at Queen Mary University of London found almost six in ten card-carrying Tories aren’t supportive of marriage equality, despite the move being introduced by a Conservative prime minister.

The report branded Tory members a “breed apart” from their counterparts in Labour, Liberal Democrats and the SNP after research revealed stark differences on major issues.

The study, based on polling by YouGov, found that just 41 percent of Tory members back same-sex marriage.

Labour party members were the most likely to be info favour, with 85 percent of members in support, while 84 percent of Lib Dems and 81 percent of SNP are supportive.

Re-introducing the death penalty was considerably more popular among Tory members than marriage equality, with 54% of Conservatives in favour of bringing back capital punishment.

Tory reshuffle gaffes prompt derision. It’s shambolic business as usual as out-of-ideas May rearranges the furniture at No 10: here.
