In response to Ann Farmer: We need incentives to beef up marriage, not water it down, Colonel Mustard wrote:
Mr Loughton, our society is not ‘changing’ – it is being changed and has been changed by politicians like you pandering to the most vociferous and active minority groups and by allowing your strings to be pulled by various supra-national bodies, including the EU. You hide behind this figleaf of society ‘changing’ and disregard the fact that the divisive changes you and your Parliamentarian colleagues impose are not universally welcomed in the society which you presume to speak for.
Then you assert that even so they are supported by a majority, but you do not confer any right of conscience on dissenting minorities as you have done for the minority groups who have made the most noise in the first place – or most often the Leftist troublemakers weaponising those minority groups. Because you adopt the socialist gambit of presuming that what you desire is ‘right’ and anyone who doesn’t like it is ‘wrong’. What a pity you could not bring yourselves to advance with such zeal the wish expressed by over 17million people on 23 June 2016. In that case you have managed to resist the ‘change’ that was so clearly signalled to you by ‘society’.
The result of championing some but not others, Mr Loughton, is far from the ‘equality’ that you and the rest of those 650 control freaks trumpet ad nauseam. It has not led to a stable, better society but to a society whose ever-increasing number of politically sponsored identity groups now appear to be locked in perpetual conflict. I don’t think you even know what ‘conservative’ means in your desire to out-radicalise the Labour party. I note also that you are one of those we have to thank for Corbyn being the leader of the Labour party.
