“Spooked” Cameron plans to have SSM Bill debated on a quiet day

Guido Fawkes has published this post today about the government’s same-sex marriage plans, and the opposition inside the Conservative Party. Do read it, though I warn you that the comments on GF’s posts can be horrendously coarse.

GF closes with the following:
Sources familiar with the planning say that the latest interventions have “seriously spooked” the government and No. 10 are pushing for the Bill to be published in the next fortnight; most likely on Thursday, January 24. The second reading is then pencilled in for the day that Parliament rises for the February Recess; Thursday, February 14. Apparently No. 10 are hoping “dozens of MPs will have left early to go to their constituencies.”
