We slouch towards Gomorrah gaily whistling YMCA….

Wives can be men and husbands could be women under bizarre word play introduced by the government. The introduction of gay marriage means old laws which gave protections or benefits to husbands or wives will become outdated. So ministers have drawn up ‘gobbledegook’ rules which overrule the dictionary and scrap the centuries-old definitions of male and female spouses.

The new guidance states: ‘This means that “husband” here will include a man or a woman in a same sex marriage, as well as a man married to a woman. ‘In a similar way, “wife” will include a woman married to another woman or a man married to a man. ‘The result is that this section is to be construed as including both male and female same sex marriage.

Blimey, I knew the bride when he used to rock and roll…

  1. These guidelines are absolutely daft nonsense. There is no need to change any definitions and the introduction of same sex marraiges need cause no complications or confusions. ‘Husband’ should simply be the term used to describe a married man, and ‘wife’ a married woman – whether they are in heterosexual or homsexual marraiges is irrelevent.

  2. There are some deeply confused people in this world, and they are deeply embedded in universities and government. It is a big problem.

  3. I emailed my MP that this or something like it would come, but she denied it. I also think lawsuits might be brought against heterosexual parents when their little Susie or Johnnie starts asking why Billy says those two men coming to collect him from school holding hands and kissing, are his mum and dad.
    Ain’t THAT going to do their little heads in…..

  4. Anyone who still thinks that government should regulate marriage is out of his mind.

    In fact, seeing as government thought this was a jolly good idea, anyone who still thinks that government should have anything to do with anything, is out of his mind. It destroys everything it touches.

  5. Pete,
    Politicians are now part of the problem, not part of the solution.
    OT
    I had thought today I would have received an acknowledgement from Theresa May. I actually short circuited the Home Secretary bit and emailed her as an MP.
    I may need to copy my email and send it as a properly addressed letter.
    But what’s the betting it will then be “processed” by one of her her NewSpeakers staff?

    I reckon she will read your letter and mumble something to herself about “Oh no not that nutter” scribbling something daft again as she screws it up and tosses it in the bin 😉

  7. Pete

    Tell me again how you’re supposed to defend the country and keep illegals out without anyone having to pay any taxes.

    A little Friday humor would do us all good.

  8. ” I reckon she will read your letter and mumble something to herself about “Oh no not that nutter” scribbling something daft again as she screws it up and tosses it in the bin ;)”

    And this nutter will keep going until he gets a reasonable answer!
    Remember what I said to you?
    No one is better than me; they just have occupy a more important role, is all. Our government relies on us to vote it into power. Our government relies on us to pay the bills for their mistakes..

  9. Phantom –

    Tell you again what I’ve explained many times already? You must be joking. Start answering questions yourself first before having the sheer cheek to ask any more.

  10. Agit8ed

    Your persistent belief that you will eventually get a reasonable answer from a politician is proof that you really must be a nutter 😉

  11. Pete

    Your intellectual superstructure falls apart upon the slightest examination.

    A government that keeps all illegals out must be of some significant size, with significant powers, and must be funded by tax that no one gets to opt out of. Even more so if resident illegals are to be thrown out.

    And that is at variance with everything you’ve said here, even today.

  12. Colm,
    ” Your persistent belief that you will eventually get a reasonable answer from a politician is proof that you really must be a nutter ;)”

    Your cynical non involvement as a member of a democratic society, in which you as a taxpayer will still have to help pay the bills imposed on you by the government of the day does not reflect well on you.

  13. Agit8ed, I thought you had a sense of humour. Obviously you don’t. I shall have to bear that in mind in any future comments I make to you.

  14. Rubbish Colm,
    Of course I have a sense of humour, but sometimes issues come up which require that men and women of good will make at least a protest!
    Things are changing swiftly in our country. Some of the changes might prove to be good and some imo are bad. I have had occasion to write to the government and the MP wherever I lived for nearly thirty years now. I really take it seriously that we as individuals have a duty to state our views on issues which concern us.
    If we don’t how can we possibly complain when things change in a way we disapprove of?

    So don’t get upset. Humour always helps, but so does protest.
    Dig out that keffiyah Petr sent you for Christmas, and take up your position.. 😉

  15. This is nothing new. Governments have often labeled people on thing when they are clearly another. For instance, Irishman David Vance is called British.

  16. I liked this..

    Reminded me of this from National Lampoon’s Vacation..
