The Lords Vote on the Sexual Orientation Regulations

With Thanks to Craig Nelson for the quote (interesting links to comments in the Guardian from his post too):

Here is a link to the breakdown of the voting in the House of Lords as well as a link to the Hansard report of speakers [transcript of Parliament debates].

Of particular note are speeches by Lord Smith, Lord Alli and Lord Lester.

Interesting that the majority of the votes against are from Conservative peers and that a large majority of Conservative voting Lords were against. Clear and uncontrovertible evidence, if any were needed, of the probability of any Tory Government (even with Cameron at the helm) enacting any socially progressive legislation at all.

All of the Labour and Lib Dem peers who voted were in favour.
