Up the poll!

RIGHT now the Telegraph is running a poll which asks: Should gay marriage by legalised?

The poll, which is not at all going the way bigots would wish, was prompted by the giddy gurglings of former Archbish of Cant, Lord (of the Wedding Rings) Carey, who – writing in the Daily Mail, claimed that a government proposal to change the status of marriage:
