A GUESTHOUSE owner who was dropped from VisitScotland listings after he refused to allow a gay couple to stay in a double room wants to stand as an MSP at the next election.On the new rules expected from the proposed Equality and Human Rights Commission, Mr Forrest claims:
"That is going to destroy tourism in the whole of Scotland. It's about time somebody stood up and said this is our moral stand against what's happening in this country.I think he's wrong on that because the new law would apply throughout the whole of the UK and no doubt elsewhere in the EU. Property rights just aren't fashionable these days.
And isn't this hilarious?
The so-called super-quango will have a £50 million-a-year budget to tackle discrimination in every walk of life.No. No. No.
There will be no "tackling" of discrimination against those who defend property rights and other freedoms. Instead, more restrictions will be placed on what was once wonderfully described as "capitalist acts between consenting adults".
(Incidentally, some readers may find it amusing that my spellchecker suggested replacing the word "hotelier" with "Hitler". Others may prefer the suggested replacement of "EU' with "EH".)
