Not a hotel? This couple – Peter and Hazelmary Bull – have a home called Chymorvah Hotel but, according to Godfrey, it is not a hotel? That is not accurate. The message is told in this way, I suspect, to confuse those in Europe who do not know the details of this case. This is not a private home, it is a commercial operation and as such it falls under the laws governing discrimination.
Godfrey's other claim that the Bulls did not permit heterosexual unmarried couples to sleep in double rooms is also incorrect – as National Secular Society council member Ray Newton discovered when he checked in with his partner, with no problem whatsoever.

Dear Mr Bloom - the state, a government, is elected by people in a democracy and one of the main duties is to be inclusive of the whole population. Religions express opinions. As such, they are often divisive and contradicting each other. As a member of the European Parliament, you should be acknowledging this difference. I suggest you should talk to your colleagues.

True, very true. But, the people get what they vote/wish for. Unfortunately, parents today are only interested in themselves and their immediate family. Nothing else matters as long as they are okay. Youngsters and children today are only interested in self-gratification and have no interest in their country, their fellow people, or their future.
It will take a massive, really massive shock to wake the British people up as to what is happening in this country today. But I fear that until unemployment, crime, house repossessions, illegal immigration and so on affects them personally - they will continue to do nothing.

Good grief - the silly comments of the two people on this excellent article show how deeply ingrained the dreadful political correctness and brainwashing EC has penetrated into our society. Well done Godfrey. You are great and your article is spot on.

The thing here with Chymorvah is that the same sex couple is married under UK law, also they have an advertised business - open to the public - and they discriminated against a pair of customers for how they are born; and who they are, based in religious fiction.

Why is the Goverment so determined to assist in destroying traditional marriage (the joining together of a man and woman)? Homosexual couples have civil partnerships. Would UKIP if elected, respect religious beliefs? I spoke to the couple running the B&B that would not provide D/B facilities to same sex couples and offered my support. A number of years ago, I had a small country hotel and would happily provide a twin bedded room to same sex couples.

Typical comments by Terry Sanderson. 'Equal rights' he screeches. Equal Rights as long as you don't speak out about a lifestyle choice, which is to a majority of people not right. Mr Bloom is correct in his analysis of the situation.

If people charge their guests money for bed and breakfast, it's not 'hospitality', they're running a business - and it was of course advertised as such. But then, why bother with facts when you're got your wonderful faith, eh? I also hope that Godfrey's constituents who were 'bred from that appalling 1960s and 1970s generation' take note when the next Eurovote comes round.

I would like some facts about the 'sad story' that Godfrey Bloom writes about. I agree that it would be an outrage for the law to prosecute private individuals over who they do, or do not, welcome into their own homes. I find it strange that I have seen nothing else about this case in the press. I have read a lot about a couple who were prosecuted for blatantly breaking the law when operating a hotel that discriminates against some people. This couple discriminate not because of anything factual but about how they 'believe' other people should 'naturally' be.
