Don't like the mad nan, but the rest of it's very funny. I wonder if the Belfast gay man's mum had any impact on the Irish vote (somehow, popular culture etc)?

Getting back on topic. Should we respect the consciences of clergy and bakers and other No voters? Triumphalism is somewhat vulgar, but surely it's disingenuous to accept these views, unless, possibly if the person is very old. Thoughts?

From the DT:

We must hope that the generous spirit that infused so many of the Yes voters will extend to taking seriously the concerns of the 38 per cent who voted No and that they will eschew triumphalism and respect the consciences of clergy and bakers.

I suppose your comments are made sardonically, but while there are real bigots out there, it's probably better to say nothing at all rather than give out mixed signals.
I watched The Imitation Game last night. So sad that not that long ago a war hero could be treated that way because of his sexuality.

Forcing people to live a lie is cruel and utterly pointless(which is what this is really about).

I would say that if you don't want to run the risk of having your beliefs offended, then you shouldn't be offering services to the public.

Pride is a good film too.

Liked "The Imitation Game" but found myself wondering if he was on the spectrum - either Aspergers or Autism

Almost certainly if Benedict C portrayal of Turing was correct!

Haven't seen Imitation Game yet, but have always thought this country's treatment of Turing was despicable. And it really wasn't that long ago.

So what should the birth certificate say?
