UK v Europe. The UK government has been ordered to allow consenting groups of gay men to engage in sex privately in another landmark ruling from seven judges at the Strasbourg court.
The government was forced to pay £20,929 in compensation to a gay man who was charged with the offence. The judges ruled that the UK Government had breached the 52-year-old unidentified individual's 'right to privacy' under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
These groups concerned about the 'moral and social fabric of society' are likely to express horror at the decision and heterosexuals and lesbians wanting to engage in similar activities will have to bring a separate action to secure the same judgment.
