Sorry for the headline, which is in fact an accurate description of what has happened. Although from the half of the judgment I’ve managed to read so far, their Lordships prefer to refer to ‘practising homosexuals’. A bit like the apocryphal ‘popular beat combo’, I guess.
More to follow when I have time, but the judgment is here and the press release here. Bizarrely, I’ve seen a quote from Thersea May welcoming the judgment as a vindication of the coalition government’s stance. I had not heard that they attempted to withdraw their refusals and they did seem to argue the case on the day, so that looks pretty dishonest at first appearances.
