The scale of rebellion David Cameron faces over same-sex marriage is made clear as dozens of MPs and peers signed up to a new cross-party alliance publicly pledging to resist the move.

Almost 60 members of the Commons and Lords have signed a letter to The Daily Telegraph accusing the Coalition of acting without a mandate.

In a strongly-worded statement, they pour scorn on the Government’s consultation process, which they say is mired in doubts over its legitimacy.

WTF is going on???

Game of Thrones was a great book but the series is total trash! It’s why I don’t go to the movies or watch any of the premium channels.
