I cannot recall any words of praise from me to the 'Lordly Cocklecarrots' who sit on our judicial benches. Usually, all they get from me is a pile of insults mixed with ridicule because all too often they appear to be as thick as the benches upon which they squat! But today they get a full-blooded cheer from me for demonstrating some good sense, and more important, some good law.
In 2014, a homosexual ordered a decorated wedding cake on which he asked that the words "Support Gay Marriage" be 'written' in icing. The owners of the bakery refused. They were happy to make the cake but because the sentiment expressed in the message was against their fundamental beliefs, they refused to write it.
The outraged homosexual then began, and pursued, a 4-year legal campaign against the bakery. It has finally reached the Supreme Court who have come down firmly in support of the bakers. The fact that Lady Hale presided raised my eyebrows because, although I can't quite remember the details of why, she remains in my mind as 'Cocklecarrot' of the first order. If I am wrong, I apologise but in this instant 'the Lady done good'!
