The 49 MPs who voted against Civil Partnerships - and how they are voting now #equalmarriage

Of the 49 MPs who voted against Civil Partnerships in 2004, 26 are still Members of the House of Commons. According the the Coalition for Equal Marriage, most will stick with their vote from 2004 despite the many comments in the debate today that show people who opposed CPs in 2004 have grown to accept and embrace them.

Three, worthy of comment have changed their mind - Desmond Swayne, Angela Watkinson and Patrick McLoughlin.
