Daily Mail: Bigoted Britain?

'Conservative UK: Most Britons still oppose gay marriage'

"Most people still oppose gay marriage and the adoption of children by same-sex couples, a Government report revealed yesterday.
"More than half believe homosexual marriages should not be allowed and two thirds think the adoption of children by same-sex couples should not have become legal nine years ago.
"The findings from the Office for National Statistics suggest the Coalition’s plans to upgrade civil partnership laws to let gay couples describe themselves as married may prove unpopular..."

The Daily Fail.
The actual statement people were asked if they agreed with was; "homosexual marriages should be allowed throughout Europe", which is somewhat different.
44% said yes, 49% no - hardly a great divide.
And isn't this survey five years old?
A poll conducted for The Times two years ago showed 61% of British people approved of gay marriage.
So stop lying.
