[NB: I intended to write this on the night the second reading passed, but I was celebrating with a glass of vino or two and wanted to put proper thought into this. So apologies for the delay.]
It’s very easy to criticise elected representatives and cause trouble for them when they’re not doing something you want to; but conversely I never want to be the type that can’t acknowledge and express gratitude when they are. I wrote a blunt open letter to you after my partner and I visited your surgery; so it’s therefore only right that I write an open letter of thanks.
Your vote on 5th Feb has meant that we are one step closer to marriage equality. For that, I’m deeply grateful. I look forward to the Bill’s progression through both Houses and hope it can continue to enjoy your support.
