The new Equalities minister is someone opposed to equal marriage:

It's not even a deep and abiding commitment to religion - she's previously left her own marriage basically because she met someone she preferred:

Meanwhile, on housing benefits, there's the bedroom tax, and the overall benefit cap. The bedroom tax is designed to fuck over people in social housing. The OBC is designed to fuck over families. It won't affect me, but it will affect a family of two people claiming two lots of JSA, housing benefit, and two lots of child benefit. Apparently feeding children is a bad thing.

Then there's the human rights act. Apparently not being allowed to commit torture is bad, as is having to take care of people, so they want to pull out of it. Doesn't matter that they probably can't, they want to.

Edited to add: Aaaand now striking is going to be even more restricted. Because why wouldn't it be? The voting system used to put governments in power isn't good enough to allow strikes!

All told, this is less of a government than it is a class war. Yet the words class war are dirty and no-one is allowed to say them. Weird - it's almost like the media have an agenda.
