British Parliament compels Northern Ireland to legalize same-sex marriage

Northern Ireland in the UK is the only part where same-sex marriage is not allowed, and forbids abortion except where a mother’s life is at risk. Britain’s parliament voted on Tuesday in favor of a plan that would compel the government to legalize same-sex marriage and extend abortion rights in Northern Ireland, if the province is unable to re-establish its own devolved government.

Isnt that a stark reminder of whats to come. It doesnt matter how independant a nation you think you are. A leftist government with enough power is happy to swoop in and fuck with your laws as they please. It doesnt matter how democratic you government was or how the irish people voted. The beliefs and opinions of the irish have no value in a westminster royal government. English leftists love coloniaism because its fine when they do it.
