10pm 9th Jan - Gay rights laws challenge fails
New rules outlawing businesses from discriminating against homosexuals have been upheld in the House of Lords.
A challenge led by Lord Morrow of the Democratic Unionist Party failed by a majority of three to one. The Lords voted 199 to 68 against the religious lobby's wrecking amendments
Despite over 1000 religious zealots protesting outside parliament tonight, including Ian Paisley, Stephen Green and George Hargreaves,
their attempt to annul the SOR regulations have FAILED.
Their campaign against the extension of legal pr otection for gays and lesb ian s in the pr ovision of goods and services was characterised by
gross misinformation and, frankly, a litany of lies and distortions.
Gino Meriano, Gay campaigner for equal rights and founder of Pink Weddings said "It was a great debate and a fantastic result, we now truly welcome the new law coming in this April 2007 and a time to see discrimination stop once and for all. Its a major step forward in securing genuine equal rights for gay families and a reality check for Ruth Kelly".
