Boris Johnson has recorded a message in favour of gay marriage:
"Hi folks, I'm Boris Johnson, I'm mayor of london. One of the amazing things about London is that it's not only got a declining crime rate, declining murder rate, more theatres than New York, less rainfall than Rome but it's also one of the few places in the country where the rate of marriage is actually increasing and I see absolutely no reason why that happy state should be denied to anybody in our country and that's why I'm supporting the Out4Marriage campaign."
For the Out4Marriage campaign, Joseph Musgrave said:
“Out4Marriage welcomes the Mayor of London reiterating his support of our campaign to see full civil and religious equal marriage made a reality. His video is another important step towards gaining a widespread consensus across the political spectrum on this issue. To readers of ConservativeHome, who I know are keen to see religious concerns addressed, I would say be patient. Our campaign is working hard to see the legal and theological debate is had and I think in the coming days and weeks, ConservativeHome readers will see that.”
