  1. “now been signed by more people than voted in the local elections in Birmingham or Manchester.” Well, I would have worried if it had been Birmingham _and_ Manchester!

  2. I think you may have confused “English” with “Living in the United Kingdom”.

    I merely mention this to save you from hundreds of Celtic commentators on your estimable blog.

  3. What has this petition got to do with Scotland or Northern Ireland? They have their own legislature that deals with this sort of thing. Anyway, I never speak on behalf of that nation just up the road from me. They don’t like it.

  4. So help me, I don’t understand why “traditional marriage” needs defending. Is anybody trying to prevent it? It’s not like I’m going to have to get a divorce because Jane and Elizabeth want to get married, is it?
