I’m not going to make a habit of this, don’t worry, but I’ve read something on Socialist Unity that I actually agree with.
A London couple is applying to have a civil partnership. Nothing unusual in that, thousands of couples have entered into civil partnerships. Iain Dale has done it, Matt Lucas did it (and got “divorced”), even Elton John has had a go. But there is something unusual about this couple from London – they’re straight.
Just as gay people are banned from getting married, straight people are banned from entering into a civil partnership. It’s all a bit daft really and these two are aiming to highlight how daft it is.
Best of luck to them. They’ll need it because the law doesn’t protect anyone who isn’t part of a minority. If they chop their legs off, convert to Buddhism and claim to be albino transexuals from Burkina Faso they’re probably in with a chance.
