News broke over the weekend that Tory Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling had said people who run Bed and Breakfasts should be allowed to refuse business to gay and lesbian couples!! I am utterly appalled at this prejudice.

Allowing certain business-owners to discriminate based on sexual orientation opens the door to discrimination based on race, religion, country of origin, and anything else - and to the sort of inequality that surely we have said goodbye to forever in this country?
Will Tories stand by or condemn this intolerance? Will the man who might be our next prime minister sit by and silently accept this sort of bigotry, or will he reassure the people of Britain that he means what he says that his party has changed?
Sign the petition to David Cameron, telling him to sack Chris Grayling and clearly state his party's stance on discrimination: http://action.compassonline.org.uk/grayling
