For a barrister I find this article remarkably short sighted. It is someone's personal point of view. Interesting maybe.....but this issue is constitutioal in scope for the UK. It was not for Spain.....because its King is not the head of an established church. The Catholic Church is not part of the furniture of state in Spain. The Church of England is in the UK. Ultimately this is where the UK people need to be involved. You cannot have a Monarch who is both Head of State....and the Established Church......if they are not crownedand married according to the canons of the established church. If the church in question does not agree to equal marriage then how would a gay King be legally joined to his/her partner in the future. If the government want this innovation in the UK it will have to disassociate itself from the church and the reorganise the polity in order to secularise or dispose of the monarchy. Are we at this point in the UK? This issue is not one that any government can force through without a mandate from their manifesto. To do so is to set up a dictatorship. I am amazed by how STUPID so may 'supposedly 'bright' people have been on this issu. Why anyon would give the lady who wrote this article or any of the Lib Dems/Conservatives who drempt up this ridiculous proposal any time from now on escapes me. It is an exercise in wasting money at a time when the nation does not have money to waste.
