Gay 'marriage' plans: the bill will be millions

THE Government now realises that same-sex 'marriage' will require a massive rewrite of legislation dating back to the year 1285.

More than 2,000 laws referring to marriage have to be changed, at a cost of many millions of pounds – all to support a whim of David Cameron, who is determined to push gay 'marriage' through, in spite of the majority of the population objecting (including many gay people).

The Government plans to take the word husband and wife out of legislation and replace them with partner, or spouse, and 'widow' to be replaced by 'woman whose deceased partner was a man'.
