Brown wrong to blame Stormont

Published 16/07/2015

I was delighted to see Newry, Mourne and Down Council endorse marriage equality; this was an important symbolic vote.

While I have no doubt about the sincerity of councillor Patrick Brown, I was surprised that he blamed the failure for the implementation of equal marriage on the "Stormont leadership".

The Alliance Party are in Stormont and their support for marriage equality is lacking (to say the least).
