Daily Mail Refashions The Gay Couple Denied Hotel Room As Skinheads

THE SHOT — This is how the Daily Mail depicts Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy (pictured), the British gay couple who just won a $5,700 judgment against hotel owners Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy, who refused them a room because they were a bunch of homosessuals. [image via]

      The Daily Mail is a vile (so called) newspaper.

      I hope the gay couple sue or complain to the press complaints commission.

      They refused themselves a hotel room?

      Interesting that in cartoons gay men are usually caricatured as effete pansies, but here they are big hulking brutes towering over the (tiny) Christian couple..
      And the cartoonist appears to have drawn a swastika on the man on the left’s right forearm – nice touch!

      Lol, good find.

      @Fagburn:
      Wow, why do these people always feel it necessary to use Nazi imagery?

      So, according to this story they denied themselves a room in their own hotel, sued themselves, and won…or lost, I’m no longer certain.

      I’m sure the cartoon is that bad. I think a typical reader’s response would be “so what. Is their money green?” or should I say “Do their pounds have the Queen’s head on them?”

      I don’t think most people think that hotel clerks need to be giving potential paying guests the once over to see if they are acceptable to do business with even if they are a bit “exotic” to them.

      For our American cousins who don’t know, the newspaper “The Daily Mail” is renowned for its “family viewpoint”, as it has a 50%+ female readership and its “right of center” political viewpoint.

      Its not what most gay people would consider to be “friendly reading material”.

      wouldn’t it be better just to have made them black? then all the bases would have been covered. they’d be big, black hulks with antisemitic, nazi tats. nothing says ominous like black nazi skinheads.

      This is the same newspaper that openly supported the British Union of Fascists in the ’30s.

      Psychological projection. Scratch a breeder, find a Nazi underneath.
