Last night I was at a wedding reception for a civil partnership. It was a lovely occasion. Two happy people and two proud families pushed the boat out to host a lavish party. Contrast this simple affirmation of mutual love with the hatred exuded by the immoral moralists of the traditionalist right and you can see where morality really lies. And, once more, it was another reminder to those 'anti-imperialists' not to romanticise movements and countries that would make such human happiness a criminal offence.
