Conservative leader Cameron to speak positively about gay partnerships

According to a report by the BBC, previewing a speech scheduled to be made tomorrow by David Cameron, recently-elected Conservative Party leader, to the National Parenting Institute, he will say that 'gay partners who have had a civil ceremony should enjoy the same tax breaks as heterosexual married couples' and will also 'warn against trying to force people into conventional lifestyles'.

If he indeed makes this speech tomorrow then I will begin to believe the Conservative Party, or at least its current Leader, is genuinely intent upon a fundamental reform of its policy agenda - as we have been promised for so long. Whilst I am now increasinlgy optimistic about this I will also continue to observe with interest how relevant votes in Parliament are dealt with by representatives there of the Conservative Party.
