Have your say

Every parent has the right to put their foot down and insist on separate bedrooms when their teenager asks for a boyfriend or girlfriend to stay over.

But if you run a bed and breakfast, you forego the right to make moral judgments on the sleeping arrangements of people who are your guests.

You’re taking cash for running a business, not setting yourself up as judge and jury.

That’s why I reckon that the couple who were fined for refusing a gay couple a double bed in their Berkshire B&B deserve everything that they got.

Fortunately, we’re starting to recognise that discrimination is discrimination – even when you’re attempting to hide behind your religious beliefs.
