Christian politician, Strictly Come Dancing contestant, panto star, virgin and general all-round nasty piece of work Anne Widdecombe (that’s her up there wearing some sort of hair) is at it again, folks. And this time it involves cake… because there are no lengths she won’t go to.
Wading into the row about a cake with a pro gay message (‘Support gay marriage’ – Shocking!) and the homophobes who refused to make it, she went on her usual froth-a-thon.
‘Surely it is an elementary feature of true democracy that nobody should be obliged by law to affirm that which he or she does not believe,’ she frothed (told you!) Because if you write it in icing, that must mean that you believe it, right?
Does it mean that racist bakers shouldn’t have to make a cake for Diwali because of their ‘sincerely held beliefs’ that everyone from somewhere else should fuck off back to somewhere else? We think not. Just make the fucking cake, baker! We don’t actually care what you think.
We have, in our time, done copy-writing vaunting the delights of convenience foods which we won’t have in the house. We did the task through our tears because we are professionals and appreciate that it was just a job for which we were being paid richly by a high-street supermarket. If only we’d known Ms. W would have been there for us.
