Gay Marriage: 22% Of Britons 'Would Spurn An Invitation To A Same-Sex Ceremony

From midnight tonight, gay Christians can get married in the UK in a landmark move that will see thousands of ceremonies taking place across the country.

But about one in five British adults would reject an invitation to a same-sex wedding, research suggests.

A BBC Radio 5 live survey also found men were nearly twice as likely to spurn the nuptials as women.

The poll of 1,007 people found 68% agreed gay marriage should be permitted, with 26% opposing it.

And 22% of those polled by ComRes for the BBC, said they would spurn an invitation to attend a same-sex wedding ceremony.

A gay rights charity told the Huffington Post UK people’s attitudes were “incredibly positive”.

But Catholic Voices, which represents the Catholic Church, said the findings of the survey reflected the reality that people remained “deeply uncomfortable” with being honest about their true feelings on the meaning of marriage.

Ruth Hunt, the Acting Chief Executive, for lesbian, gay and bisexual charity, Stonewall, told Huff Post that the UK’s first gay marriages were a “delightful” moment for the nation’s history.

“The first same-sex weddings are a landmark moment in Britain and were delighted that so many people will be celebrating with happy couples up and down the country.

Hitachi switches global rail business to London

LONDON: Japanese electronics giant Hitachi will move its global rail business to London, as it seeks expansion in Britain and elsewhere in Europe, it said Thursday. The group appointed London-based Alistair Dormer, the former head of Hitachi Rail Europe, as the new chief executive officer of its global rail systems business with effect from April 1, it said in a statement. Hitachi aims to bid for lucrative contracts on Britain’s new 50-billion ($82.5 billion, 60 billion euros) High Speed 2 (HS2) railway which will be built in two stages from 2016 with completion slated for 2033

BBC accused of 'left-wing bias' for employing ex-Labour adviser as economics reporter

BBC Newsnight has been accused of having a ‘left wing bias’ [BBC]

This appointment is the equivalent of sticking two fingers up at those who are concerned about left-wing bias.

Tory MP Angie Bray

The appointment of Duncan Weldon, who also worked as an economist at the Trades Union Congress (TUC), has led one Tory to claim the BBC is “sticking two fingers up at those who are concerned about Left-wing bias” at the organisation.

A BBC spokesman said Mr Weldon, who has little experience as a journalist, is “widely respected” across the political spectrum for his economic analysis.

Left-wing commentator Owen Jones has denounced claims that the BBC has a left-wing bias as a “fairytale”.

John Whittingdale, chairman of the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said: “It is extremely important that whoever holds that position is seen to be both qualified and objective.

“There are certainly question marks raised in both those areas about this appointment.”

Fellow Committee member Angie Bray, also a Tory, said: “There is a one-way street between the left-wing and the BBC.

“This appointment is the equivalent of sticking two fingers up at those who are concerned about left-wing bias.”

The row over the BBCs Left-wing bias escalated last night after it emerged that its latest recruit has written hundreds of blogs attacking Government policy.

Senior Tories are furious that Duncan Weldon, a former adviser to Harriet Harman and economist at the TUC, has been made economics correspondent of Newsnight despite little experience as a journalist.

He is the latest in a series of Left-wing appointments at the BBC including Newsnight editor Ian Katz and former Labour Cabinet minister James Purnell prompting concerns that the corporation is becoming increasingly biased against the Conservatives.

Tony Benn, bastion of the left, dies aged 88

By the early 1970s double-barrelled Anthony Wedgwood Benn was going by the name Tony Benn. He later tried to remove references to his private education at Westminster School from Who’s Who.

Benn held several cabinet posts in the 1970s, including secretary of state for industry and secretary of state for energy under Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan.

He stood unsuccessfully for the Labour leadership in 1976 and 1988.

By the end of the 1970s Benn had become of the most influential figures on the far left of the Labour party.

Benn variously advocated the abolition of the House of Lords, the unification of Ireland and the end of the monarchy.

Despite serving as an RAF pilot in world war two, he was a frequent opponent of military action, opposing the Falklands war, the Kosovo war and the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan.

He later said Tony Blair was guilty of “a war crime” for misleading the House of Commons over the justification for the invasion of Iraq.

Benn became president of the Stop the War Coalition after his retirement from politics in 2001.

In a 2007 BBC poll Benn was voted the UK’s Political Hero, after winning 38 per cent of the vote, beating Margaret Thatcher with 35 per cent.
