    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?
    Nobody opposing this bill on a solid moral foundation is opposing the act of sex. They are opposing the idea that a child should have to be exposed both to an unnecessary risk of defect and being raised by siblings.

    So yes, obviously gay relatives can **** and I don't have a problem with that. Straight ones can too, but this bill makes no mention of protections against procreation.

    It is slightly off topic, but while I am still unmade up on this bill, I would actually like to thank the writer for submitting it as something that occurred to me today when discussing the recordings of lectures and sensitive/controversial subjects made me think of the HoC compared to the MHoC.

    Here we can debate, somewhat civilly, issues such as this and others which are controversial, and do so freely without the worry of our words being twisted in the media, or without having to stop and think if it would damage the party in the polls. Issues which may not be vital or a priority, but are controversial, too much so to ever have a proper, meaningful debate in the actual House of Commons.

    And it tends to be these more controversial bills where people's views can be challenged, and party divided perhaps mean less than one's own views and beliefs, which can be much more fun and entertaining to debate and discuss than the more typical items which go before the house more regularly

    My 30 second poem "Ode to The Telegraph"

    Nescient nitwits natter nonchalantly
    Arrogant anglophones angrily arrogate
    Some semblance (of) sophomoric sophistry
    Taking time to tell
    You you're yawningly young

    Thank you, I'm here all week.

    Agreed, I may be repulsed by this but respect to the Libers for submitting it. It's certainly brought non-MHoCers to the forum which is a good thing.
