To appoint one Equalities Minister who voted against gay marriage looked sloppy, to do it twice looks frankly strange. Yet that is what the Prime Minister has just done.

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan voted against same sex marriage in July 2013, though she claims she has subsequently changed her mind.


Caroline Dinenage, the Gosport MP, who has just replaced Morgan in the Equalities brief, also voted against it.

As one Tory MP ponders: ‘When almost half the Parliamentary party voted for same sex marriage why can he not find an equalities minister who did?’
