Britain wouldn’t be about to leave the EU if David Cameron hadn’t pushed through same-sex marriage, because it handed power to the right.
That’s according to leading columnist Dominic Lawson, brother to TV domestic goddess Nigella Lawson and son of former Conservative chancellor Lord Nigel Lawson.

The Daily Mail says lots of ridiculous things, best just to deny the existence of that entire media outlet to be honest.

Of all the nonsense I have read and heard over the last few days, that about takes the biscuit.

I believe gay marriage was also responsible for floods, the plague of frogs and the slaughter of the first born.

It would be nice to ignore it but a lot of people believe what is in the Daily Mail

EQUAL MARRIAGE is so minor in the UK, that it's rarely talked about anymore.  It just is.

You all seem to be REALLY underestimating reactionary bigotry. When a majority group has moderate feelings of hate for a minority group and sees that group succeed in any way (which feels intrinsically threatening to them) it causes a backlash. This is not even complex sociology. The statement is MORE than reasonable that Brexit is the result of what the provinces saw as liberalism (immigration and gay marriage as examples) that did not align with their beliefs. Notice how the votes fell. The more metropolitan areas voted progressively and the provinces voted regressively. The exact same reactionary bigotry is taking place here in America. Some seem to be under the impression that just because marriage equality was achieved that people aren't still really REALLY angry about it. There anger goes so far that it pushes them into even deeper conservatism. You can only push a pendulum so far before it inevitably must go back the other direction. And that is what is happening in America and Britain. My concern is more in how this type of renewed separatist nationalism (on the part of the USA and the UK) might push us into a third world war, in the past it starts with these type of events.

I declare a disinterest - I didn't vote, I gagged at both sides in our referendum.

But what is really annoying in this country is that it is assumed that 17,000,000 people voted the way they did because they were the unwashed, the ignorant, the uneducated, the poor, the old, the racist, the fascist. Nobody could have voted because they saw the EU as a sclerotic, anti-democratic oligarchy who had blighted the lives of so many people especially in the like of Spain and Greece.

As I say, I didn't vote Sad
