Civil Partnerships in Parliament?

In whats starting to become a "trend" (thankyou Penny Corfield), here is another gender-based blog for all you Labbers out there.

In perusing the dailies' websites the other morning, I came across this article in the Independent, revealing Gordon Brown's plans allow Civil Partnerships to be held in the 14th century Crypt-Chapel attached to Westminster, traditionally reserved for the heterosexual marriages of MPs and their families.

Potentially good news, though the Independent could only point out 2 openly gay politicians that would benefit from this change to 'make the House of Commons more representative of the nation', so its unlikely the chapel will be fully-booked just yet!
