    ... and have sex.

    That's what he's getting at. Why is it assumed that gay/lesbian folk do nothing but **** all day?

    So you agree that B&B owners can turn away gay people?

    Did I say that and to be fair neither did he.

    If someone wants to exclude people from using their business if it doubles up as their home then they should be allowed. If they do then I cannot see their business lasting very long but they should be allowed to be idiots and ruin their business as they see fit.

    hopefully the gays will be sh&gging in the B&B owners hallways

    Yes. It's their B&B and IMO they should only have to let people in that they want to.

    Even if they said a certain race were not allowed it I wouldn't have a problem with that.

    The point is simple. You open up your house as a B&B you then become a business and therefore you need to play fair. You can't pick and choose between your personal opinions and your obligation to provide a service (business-wise).

    B&B = business. It's not as though they are helping someone out by letting them stay in their spare room.

    Show me one B&B that isn't taking advantage of the tax breaks for declaring a percentage of their home to be used for business. They can't have it both ways.

    he also said this,

    "If they are running a hotel on the high street, I really don't think that it is right in this day and age that a gay couple should walk into a hotel and be turned away because they are a gay couple, and I think that is where the dividing line comes."

    so my point remains the same, if the b&b doubles up as your home then yes you should have a say in who stays in your home no matter how idiotic or stupid the reasons.

    But the point remains that B&B owners have tax breaks for having a certain percentage of their homes declared as business premises. It would be hypocritical to then allow a personal opinion of the owner to influence a business decision.

    No, I'm not gay.
    I stayed in a wonderful place in Brighton once that was clearly 'gay friendly' and I was treated like a King (or Queen!).
    It is ridiculous to have people not wanting to have gay people stay in their businesses, so to have some Tory Boy agreeing with them is exasperating!

    Not at all. Discrimination is discrimination. Full stop.
    A stag party is more likely to cause problems than a gay couple though so precautions should be taken.
    I stayed in Blackpool on a stag do and we were forced to stay in a two bed room at the end of the corridor (there was 8 of us).

    well take away the tax breaks and any other benefits that they may recieve from having their home as their business. If they want to live by the sword then let their "business" die by the sword.

    Someone got mocked on here for saying he believed HUKD was quite homophobic in it's stance and almost allowed homophobic comments.

    He was mocked and I felt it was a bit OTT at the time, I thought he was referring to (no homo) etc, which tbh is in jest, but reading the undertones in this thread it's strong homophobia.

    If this thread was about the same subject but instead of gay people, Muslims or black people for examples, the thread and the comments in it would have been pulled ages ago.
