    I find it funny that all the people speaking out are members of the Labour Party, that supposedly progressive force of social justice that doesn't like the idea of two consenting adults in love having sex and thinks it should be illegal because they happen to be related.

    This just illustrates how illogical and hypocritical the left are.

    With the exception of DMcGovern, who's superior intellect has allowed him to get over the default knee jerk that the rest of you have defaulted to, bravo Des!
    I don't think it proper that you insult my intellect. In future, please do act with decorum. Just because I do not support your view does not give you any right to suggest that I am any less intelligent.

    Sex between consenting adults is fine. Where there is a blood relation it wrong because scientifically inbreeding leads (in many cases) to disability.

    Please consider your attitude in future.

    lol people always use that as an excuse. Just admit you are a hypocrite and you don't want two consenting adults from the same family getting together because you find it disgusting. I find incest disgusting as well but I have no right to force that view onto two consenting adults who are harming nobody. You certainly can't complain about homophobes but you will because you're a hypocrite.

    So what if two gays from the same family decided to get together? Would that be ok since there is no chance of a baby being born?

    True, but I don't think we made it clear that it was a progressive attempt at helping paedophiles.

    No, no it didn't.

    And then UKIP called us child molesters in the GE.
    And people were disgusted and wanted the mhoc closed

    It was more praising Des' intelligence and calling you a hypocrite - you just presumed it was a personal attack because you are subconsciously realising that you are wrong and have made a stupid decision. I assume you are also opposed to people with Down's Syndrome having sex then, as that is much more likely to be inherited? Just admit you're an authoritarian looney that wants to force his own personal views on social issues onto everyone else; you lot are just as bad as homophobes and pro-life religious fruitcakes.

    Nay, incest is something that decreases variations in the gene pool, thus making it more likely for people to be born with various genetic disorders and illnesses

    This has been said several times and isn't really a logical reason to be against it since healthy couples with an increased likelihood of producing a child with a disability aren't banned from procreating. Not to mention that not all incestuous couples will have biological children. Would you be okay with it if they adopted? Or like someone else said, if they were gay?

    Yes
    So then you're not actually opposed to incest, you're opposed to the procreation of disabled children?

    Not only is it messed up socially, inbreeding carries a biological risk of reducing the size of the gene pool and increasing the predisposition of genetic disorders.

    Also, comparing disgust with incest to disgust with homosexuality is not really accurate. Being gay isn't a choice whereas incest clearly is.

    Why are sure that one sexual predilection is natural, but another "clearly" cannot be. I assume you can show me the psychological studies that support this position? If so, I will address that for the vote.

    If I want to send this to a second reading, or to vote, can I do that myself or would you want me to have Joe do it?

    I've received something from Joe, so I presume that is what you want to proceed with?
