The Bundesrat isn't directly elected either.
I's partly elected; partly appointed; partly specialists.
The Bundesrat is not stuffed with unelected pensioners who cannot ever be kicked out though.
There is absolutely zero justification for unaccountable lifetime membership of an Upper House.
So it's passed through parliament. Will become law this week...
Can't wait for that miserable old bitch to put pen to paper. I hope it sticks in her throat.
I spent a while trying to figure out which DM columnist you were on about there.
OOH there AIN'T no OTHER WAY
The Queen has OFFICALLY given her seal of approval for same-sex marriages to take place as of next summer.
When it is all completely legal, will The STOP FUCKING HATE stop using the term 'married', like here?

Bless him, he always comes across as such a nice young man, although he could do with putting on a couple of pounds.
*MOVES TO LONDON*
I pretty much do the same in my head.
They blatantly just kept it secret to try and spare poor TurnerPrize
Me too. I won't when it is legal, though.
Hurrah - Teather's standing down next election.
Preferable to her stand up at least
Oh, I see she's claiming this as some sort of protest. Would be more effective if her seat wasn't almost certainly going to fall to Labour in 2015.
So gay weddings will take place from 29th March next year. Which also happens to be Norman Tebbit's birthday.
I can't wait for all the snazzy wedding invites!
That's two days before my 34th. THERE'S STILL TIME.
Can GAYS upgrade their CP to a marriage like a mobile phone contract?
Is that just for England and Wales? I already get enough grief from bridezillas getting their wedding stuff printed, I'll need a firm preparation period to get ready to deal with the GAY-ZILLAS
Just England and Wales.
Time for Berwick and Carlisle to cash in.
Gretna Green AGOG
Equal Marriage has just PASSED in the Scottish Parliament, 105 for and 18 against
god how DEPRESSING it must be to be one of those 18. why do they bother to still LIVE?
I want them TARRED AND FEATHERED.
I hope Keith O'Brien finds a nice man to marry.
Look at this old COCK from the BBC website:
And to think they're even uglier on the inside. The Tory on the bottom right looks like a creature from an Aardman animation.
I see they don't have a problem with LESBIAN HAIRCUTS
105 to 18 that's a LANDSLIDE if their ever was one. At least it wasn't the awful labour it was in France last year
Thankfully John Mason's wrecking amendment was soundly voted down too. I didn't see the debate but people were saying it was very spiriting and largely positive, with the Green Party's Patrick Harvie as clear MVP.
"The consequences of this bill? Well, with a little bit of luck some people will live happily ever after. And we will get cake!"
So that just leaves...
Aren't the Northern Irish having a referendum? Tragic.
What is public opinion like in Northern Ireland?
god what a parade of MISERY!
From the brief new snippets I've seen - EXACTLY what you'd imagine. The LAST part of the UK that should have a referendum on it!
