DUP leader Arlene Foster has been moaning – yet again – about how same-sex marriage and abortion were “imposed” on Northern Ireland by Westminster. Same-sex marriage finally became legal in Northern Ireland on January 12 2020, with the first same-sex weddings expected to take place in the territory on Valentine’s Day. Needless to say, Foster is unhappy about this development. Arlene Foster wants Northern Ireland to have its ‘own voice heard’ – but this conflicts with her desire for full alignment with rest of UK. Speaking on Peston on ITV,...

Call off the search parties: we have found the gay ally and hero we need in 2020, only 15 days into this new decade.
