The U.K. government may come out in support of same-sex marriage tomorrow, Business Insider is reporting. “Tim Montgomorie of Conservative Home appears to have confirmed the rumors, while James Chapman of the Daily Mail tweets that the intervention is coming after a ‘personal intervention’ from Prime Minister David Cameron.” The announcement is likely to occur at the Liberal Democrat conference tomorrow. Cameron had reached out to gay voters during the 2010 election, but came under criticism for stopping an interview at which he fumbled an answer about the Tories’ voting record on gay equality and later left out a reference to gay people in a speech kick-starting the Tories’ election campaign.
