Turned away from the inn
In a recording of the meeting of the Centre for Policy Studies, obtained by the Observer, Grayling makes clear he has always believed that those who run B&Bs should be free to turn away guests.
Iain Dale believes that his views, as expressed, will be damaging and are wrong.This is not about property rights. If you open your house to paying guests, it is no longer just your house. You are running a business, just the same as anyone else, and you should be subject to the same laws as anyone else.
The Devil profoundly disagrees on a philosophical and profane level.
Let me disagree with Iain on a practical level, whatever the law says B&Bs and people who have lodgers are inviting strangers into their own homes, they have to feel happy with them and trust them. Intuition, whims and prejudices all play a part. Anyone who runs such a business is terrified of being sued now for turning away the wrong sort of person who will sue. A dog-whistle from the Tories on this is reassuring to their voters.
Oh and The Devil is right on a the philosophical level as well.
