Key supports marriage equality

John Key has come out stronger in support of marriage equality, saying he is unlikely to change his mind and vote against at second reading. I guess he must have done some polling over the weekend. Still, it is good to see politicians listening on this, and doing the right thing.

This move will hopefully encourage more National MPs to back him, rather than sitting on the fence.

Meanwhile, if you'd like to lobby those MPs, the Equal Marriage campaign has a handy online tool here. Just remember to be polite; we need as many allies as possible on this.
