I was disgusted to read that two elderly spinster sisters face the agony of selling the home they have shared for 40 years when one of them dies – after judges ruled they are not entitled to the same rights as gay and lesbian couples.
Joyce and Sybil Burden, who have lived together all their lives, argued they should be spared inheritance tax in the same way as married couples, or homosexuals who form a civil partnership. But yesterday the oxymoronic European Court of Human Rights threw out their case, by a 4-3 verdict, landing them with a £10,000 legal bill and facing certain future heartbreak.
Here we see the true menace of so-called "Equality legislation" framed by the homosexual lobby and embraced by the liberal intelligentsia. It seems whilst the all people are equal, but gay and lesbians are more equal than others.
Maybe these two sisters should claim to be Lesbians in order not to lose their home when one passes away????
