Goin' to the lovely chapel in Brixton and we're gonna get civil partnered, govnah

by Jeremy Hooper

   Under a new law effective on this joyous Monday, blokes who like blokes and lassies who dig lassies began applying to enter into civil partnerships today in the UK. The first of such ceremonies will begin taking place on December 20 in Scotland, and on the following day in England and Wales.

Meanwhile, here in the states, gays can today apply for a passport so that they can enter the UK and attend one of these queer quasi-marriages. That may not sound as rewarding, though in actuality, it's still not.
