South being the Southern USA I assume, not Cork or Kerry? 😃

So you are clearly stating geographical location is a factor?

So in Crossmaglen a man walks into a cake shop and asks for a cake with a sash and a god save ulster slogan, are they legally obliged to deliver or face the wrath of the equality commission?

Are you asking me that? I've already said I'm not sure about this ruling because of potential issues like that. I'm not arguing against you 😃

This is nonsense. I own a business built with hard earned money on my own property. If I don't want to do business with somebody for what ever reason I should have the right to turn them away. My business....my choice.

Yes, on my understanding of this judgement, unless they have an explicit policy about not making cakes with political/religious slogans.

But if I was them, i'd take the order.

Take the order and ask them at what time they were coming back to collect it.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Yeah, but there's this thing called 'the law'.

If you don't want to do business with someone because they have a bad credit history, for example, that's fine. If you don't want to do business with them on the basis of their religion, race, sexuality, gender etc. then you're discriminating.

The orange order doesn't obey the law but that is ok?

All a bit tame. Needs more vitriol, pedantry and shouting by ugly people.

Very difficult situation for Stephen Nolan here.

To go a whole hour talking about cakes without eating anything will be the most difficult programme he's faced yet.

Was he not supposed to be on some weight loss regime? I haven't watched him in years and he looks bigger than ever.
