Tory MP agrees with another MP, but can’t remember what about…

7th November, 2012 5:00 pm

We thought that Vince Cable has the worst memory in Parliament. We were wrong. Step forward Tory MP for Lincoln Karl McCartney, who is recorded in Hansard with this classic:

“I congratulate my hon. and learned Friend, and neighbour, on securing this debate. Does he agree that the point he was making, which has just gone out of my mind, regarding our area of Lincolnshire-I have completely forgotten what I was going to say.”

We’re sure McCartney hasn’t forgotten his majority is just 1,058. We’re also sure that his constituents won’t forget that he said that the logical conclusion of gay marriage would be to allow bigamy and child marriage.

    Polygamy WILL be next.  Few people are monogamous nowadays, and bisexuals are not by definition.
    I wonder which Christian church will break ranks first to support bigamous marriage.
    There is a compelling urge these days to legitimise our vices.
