England, UK: London Mayor Says Government Should "Get on and Whack Through" Marriage EqualityBoris Johnson has again affirmed his support for marriage equality, as the debate over legalising equal marriage in the UK heats up, saying that the government should “whack through” the legislation.

Yesterday the Mayor of London was one of nineteen senior Conservatives who announced the formation of a new campaign group supporting marriage equality, which said “Marriage should be open to all, regardless of sexuality.”

The group uses the slogan, Freedom to Marry, and includes Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, and cabinet ministers. Later in the day, Mr Johnson, told Sky News’s Murnaghan programme that “it is perfectly obvious that the constituency is there for doing this,” reports the Metro. He also said the coalition government should “get on and whack through,” legislation to allow equal marriage.
