Gay marriage bid 'hijacked by lobbyists'
10th June 2012
A senior Conservative has called for the gay marriage consultation to be scrapped because it has no security safeguards and is “wide open to abuse”.
Canterbury MP Julian Brazier, in a letter to Home Office Minister Lynne Featherstone, warns that the “defective” online consultation form “lacks even the most rudimentary of safeguards” to prevent it being hijacked by lobby groups.
It comes amid claims that the form is being filled in by gay rights activists in California.
Mr Brazier has called on Ms Featherstone to tear up the “flawed” consultation, which ends on Thursday, and start again with a “robust and rigorous” process. The online form does not require a person to give their name, address, e-mail account address or even verify that they are a UK citizen.
