Research by the Pink News website has found that Gordon Brown has never attended a Parliamentary vote on gay rights issues since Labour came to power.  Pink News does not believe that the Chancellor’s workload is a sufficient excuse for not voting.   It notes that Tony Blair managed four votes.

Ming Campbell is revealed as the most gay-friendly party leader – according to the site – having recorded ten votes in favour of gay rights since 1997.
