Gay couple win Berkshire B&B refusal case

Careful, you'll have the thought police after you.
It is now government policy that homosexuals (or whatever they like to be called today) are to be held up as a shining example to our children, are never, ever wrong about anything, and the rest of us must bend over backwards (or, indeed, forwards) not to offend their particularly delicate feelings.

It's bollocks that they're getting money for 'hurt feelings', but I myst say, unless they tipped up in BDSM gear, the B&B owner is wrong to refuse entry because they are gay. Would he have refused entry to a young unmarried couple to, or Jews?

I miss the free market. The joke is that when you have a situation in which people are compelled to serve anyone regardless of race, religion sexuality etc. you don't actually challenge the attitudes. The great thing about free speech is that you know who the nobs are. A person should be allowed to refuse to serve anyone they so wish and put up a sign saying 'No dogs, no blacks & no irish'. Let's see how long they stay in business. Now they just really hate homosexuals all the more.

I wonder if a muslin B&B owner would serve me my essential bacon sarnie for breakfast , I`d be offended if not.

Who gives a flying **** if the B&B owners were offended? There's a law that says you can't discriminate against people for being gay, they broke it.

Thing is, the B&B did not refuse to let them stay, just refused to give them a double room. So they could have stayed there, but of course because they were gay and played the discrimination card all this was blown out of proportion. I see they have also said that they say that legal action may not be over, so they appear to not be satisfied with winning and want more. If I owned a B&B and saw them coming, I would suddenly be full.

Is there not a law that allows the B&B owners right to refuse? Would you say the same if a stinking dirty tramp, or a fella dressed as a NAZI, a gypsy etc went to stay there?

And so treated them differently just because they were gay.
They could have done the same to a couple that they suspected were having an affair and in many other cases. Them being gay doesn't make them special as it appears that most gay people think.

Just as Devils Advocate...Would the gay couple have kicked off if the B&B owners had said they were Muslim? Would the Courts have ruled in the same way?
