...April 19th 2012, from 10 Downing Street London SW1, to Mrs Joanna Bogle:
"We are proposing no changes to how religious organisations define and solemnise religious marriages and we are very clear that a marriage through a religious ceremony and on religious premises will continue to be only legally possible between a man and a woman." (emphasis original)
Now read the latest statement from David Cameron, of 10 Downing Street London SW1.
That April letter went on "We recognise the vital role that religious organisations have in our society, and we are clear on the importance of religious freedom. That is why the Government are listening and working with all religious organisations tht have concerns about this. I hope you will find that reassurring."
No, I did not find it reassurring. And I was right.
Nothing that Cameron could now say - ever - would reassure me.
