Two Queens on the Throne?

The Sun

The opponents of marriage equality are losing the battle. You know they are when they resort to silly arguments like this:

BRITAIN could end up with TWO Queens on the throne if gay marriage becomes law, an MP warned last night.

Tory Peter Bone claimed the new legislation would throw the monarchy into crisis.

He said it would mean a lesbian Queen having a Queen consort or a gay King having a King consort.

Mr Bone has demanded an emergency summit of Commonwealth leaders to discuss the planned changes.

He said: “They seem to be rushing this through without thinking of the broader implications.”

The MP has fired off a letter to Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone warning of possible upheaval in the monarchy.

And he wants to know if it is the Government’s plan to change the Royal Marriages Act of 1772 to allow a same-sex union.

Mr Bone believes this would make it impossible for the monarch to continue as supreme governor of the Church of England.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
