A Cherry Room for everyone

Under the threat of legal action if their earlier decision was not reversed, and with the legal advice to the council supporting that view, last night Lisburn City Council voted again on whether to allow same-sex civil partnership ceremonies to be held in the, by now infamous, Cherry Room. As the BBC reports they voted in favour this time.. but not without some dissent, most notably from the Alliance Party’s Seamus Close, who according to the Belfast Telegraph, walked out of the meeting before the vote was taken.
