Great Britain Debates Gay Marriage

Gay marriage has been getting a lot of attention over the past few weeks worldwide. New Zealand, Uruguay, and France have all jumped on board and now Great Britain finds itself in a heated debate over same-sex marriage rights.

David Cameron, current British Prime Minister and Conservative Party member, has helped push gay marriage legislation through Parliament. However, there is fear that Cameron’s support for gay marriage will split his party before his 2015 re-election campaign.

Similar to politics across the pond, there is a rift between right wing politicians and voters with some supporting gay marriage and others standing staunchly opposed.

Cameron’s political foes, the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats, both support the legislation. Debate over the legislation will continue in the House of Commons until Tuesday; however, the bill still has a long way to go before it would be approved and implemented.
