Clegg calls anti same-sex marriage clan 'bigots'.



Nick Clegg labelled those against same-sex marriage as "bigots" in a press release from the Government:

The Deputy Prime Minister is expected to say:

"Continued trouble in the economy gives the bigots a stick to beat us with, as they demand we 'postpone' the equalities agenda in order to deal with “the things people really care about”. As if pursuing greater equality and fixing the economy simply cannot happen at once..."


A reworded press release was hurriedly sent out soon after.

The Deputy Prime Minister is expected to say:

"Continued trouble in the economy leads some people to demand we 'postpone' the equalities agenda in order to deal with “the things people really care about”. As if pursuing greater equality and fixing the economy simply cannot happen at once..."
