Here comes the....er....

Given that the Tory Party are all about the social left these days; wind farms on our hats, hugging each other and staying well away from the notion of tax cuts being a good thing, I was rather surprised that the esteemed organ of the party on t'interweb has chosen not to say anything about the forthcoming double-frocked nuptials of Alan Duncan.
The Telegraph reported that David Cameron was "thrilled" about it, having embraced same sex marriages in his first conference speech, so why was it not even mentioned in Tory Diary? Surely the first member of the shadow cabinet getting hitched to another chap is worthy of comment besides a link to the Telegraph story?

Or perhaps the powers that be at ConHome Towers are none too keen on this piece of news? The mutterings that reach my pretty shell-likes do tell me that someone high up and his virtuous and religion led bedtime companion are not fans of Steps or Abba tribute bands...

You obviously don't look hard enough you silly moo - it appeared the day before your post. But don't let the truth get in the way of your blinkered view of life.

Tory MP Alan Duncan to enter civil partnership

"A senior member of David Cameron's team is to become the first Conservative MP to enter into a civil partnership. Alan Duncan, the shadow business secretary, will make political history with his announcement in The Daily Telegraph today. Mr Duncan, 50, an MP since 1992, will be the first member of the Cabinet or shadow cabinet to have entered into a legal partnership with a same-sex partner." - Telegraph

Didn't she say

Looks like it was you who obviously don't look hard enough, or perhaps cannot read?
