For those living in a bubble, Gareth Lee ordered a Bert & Ernie cake from Ashers Bakery, but wanted "Support Gay Marriage" written on the cake. The bakery refused on the grounds of religious beliefs. Rather than just go to another shop, Mr Lee took the bakery to court.
The bakery lost the court case and the subsequent appeal, but today the Supreme Court has ruled that the bakery had the right to refuse Mr Lee's message.
All this took 4 years. The original cake cost £36.
Incredibly, the Equality Commission joined Mr Lee in the case and spent more than £150,000 of public money on this complete waste of time. It really is an outrage, as though this Bert & Ernie cake was somehow in the public interest.
We've got services being pulled left right and centre, but someone deems it acceptable to spend public money on this load of shite. Heads should roll.
Don't you agree?
