I can't wait to see some gay marriages among Federal Conservatives....this is from the UK...
A senior member of David Cameron's team is to become the first Conservative MP to enter into a civil partnership.
Alan Duncan, the shadow business secretary, will make political history with his announcement in The Daily Telegraph today.
Mr Duncan, 50, an MP since 1992, will be the first member of the Cabinet or shadow cabinet to have entered into a legal partnership with a same-sex partner.
Mr Cameron, who embraced same-sex relationships in his first party conference speech as leader, told The Daily Telegraph last night that he was "thrilled" for Mr Duncan.
Mr Duncan and his partner James Dunseath, 39, a press officer in the City, will hold the ceremony at Marylebone registry office in the summer. Mr Cameron, who has not been to a civil partnership ceremony, is hoping to attend.
