That Mask Just Won't Stay On

Daveybloke's Cuddly Minister for Boot Camps, Chris Graybeing, has been caught making discriminatory remarks about hotel owners, claiming that people who run hotels on the high street have fewer rights than those who offer bed and breakfast services from their own homes. Graybeing takes 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", while on the other hand Graybeing really doesn't think 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". Presumably the discrimination arises because hotels are bigger establishments and deal with larger amounts of money, in which the nasty, slimy, corrupt homosexual currency can be discreetly hidden until it is carried in AIDS-proof bags to the laundry. By contrast, the white Christian hard-working families whose bed and breakfast establishments are their castles, and whom Daveybloke's austerity bonanza will force to scrimp and save for every penny, can claim no such protection. Some of these deserving little tradespersons may even be forced to carry the homosexual money around in their personal wallets next to their own buttocks, or even give it as pocket money to those of their children whom they hope will grow up to be bankers, parliamentarians and other varieties of successful benefit claimant. Graybeing does not seem to have made clear his feelings about the rights of bed and breakfast entrepreneurs who object to blacks, Irish, dogs, Muslims or women who dress the wrong way; but it should be possible to make an educated guess.

    Apparently the Conservatives are now saying that (a) he was just talking about the good old days when you could hold opinions like that without the Politically Cameroon Brigade ramming multicultural bisexuality down your throat, and (b) his opinions aren't those of the modern, cuddly Conservative party anyhow. Evidently he got to be shadow Home Secretary through the same sort of minor oversight that led to Daveybloke not knowing what his party's policy on gay rights actually is.
