Will you marry me - Daddy?

There's another  fatal flaw in Prime Minister Cameron's plans to make Same Sex "Marriage" legal.

Actor Jeremy Irons has pointed out that, if the bill is passed, it will be quite in order for a father to marry his son.

This could be a very sound way for well heeled fathers to avoid the penalty of inheritance tax.

And, apparently, the question of breaking the law by committing incest is a non starter as incest only applies to those of different sexes.

Well David, that's another fine mess you've got us into.


  1. Did you choose Laurel and Hardy because of these lines from Beau Chumps?

    O: Didn't I just tell you I was going to be married?
    S: Who to?
    O: Why a woman, of course. Did you ever hear of anybody marrying a man?
    S: Sure.
    O: Who?
    S: My sister.

  2. Richard, Eccles - Brilliant post, brilliant comment!

  3. I just saw that clip of HuffPo interviewing Jeremy Irons. Bravo, Mr. Irons. A real man, imagine that, with confidence and courage. Mind you, he was rather mild about it but at least he said exactly how he feels and wasn't cowed into political correctness.

  4. People have thrown out reason, justice and truth to cower before the secularist materialist dictatorship.

  5. A prohibtion on this happening would necessitate the rewriting of the Table of Affinity.

  6. Consanguinity and affinity. Yes, under the envisaged law I would be prohibited from marrying my mother, my grandmother, my sister, etc. But why - when the whole new radical unnatural "marriage" necessarily means that no value is recognised as inhering in natural motherhood (or fatherhood, and the consequent relationships) or in potentially life-giving relationships capable of consummation?

  7. Thank you all.
    Eccles, I was certainly aware of the L & H quote (but subconsciously).
