Scottish news and opinion: Same sex marriage
Just in time for LGBT History Month Scottish politics provided the best news headline of the year so far: Opposition party leaders unite over same-sex marriage.
Had the headline referred to any other country, I would have dreaded clicking on the link. After all, as recently as 2010, there were more countries in the world where homosexuality was punishable by death than countries which permitted same-sex marriage. In Scotland, though, this headline heralded unity across the political spectrum in support of marriage equality.
