Say hello to the new Justice Secretary – he believes B&Bs should be able to bar gay people

Chris Grayling has just been made Justice Secretary. He believes B&Bs should be able to bar gay people. Here’s the quote, from back in 2010:

“I think we need to allow people to have their own consciences.

“I personally always took the view that… if you look at the case of ‘Should a Christian hotel owner have the right to exclude a gay couple from their hotel?’

“I took the view that if it’s a question of somebody who’s doing a B&B in their own home, that individual should have the right to decide who does and who doesn’t come into their own home.”

Now he’s in charge of Justice…
