Ann Widdecombe has called for a referendum on the subject on gay marriage. She believes in doing this because the Coalition for Marriage carried out an opinion poll which showed that 51% of people thought it was unnecessary. This flies in contrast to previous opinion polls.
The reason? I suspect it has to do with the loaded nature of the question asking whether they agree or disagree with this statement:
Since gay and lesbian couples already have the same rights as married couples available to them under civil partnership, they should not be allowed to redefine marriage for everyone else.
So lets look at just what was asked in the other independent opinion polls on the issue.
