I’m mildly amused this morning, having run across this private members bill by Tory MP Philip Davies that’s being debated in parliament today. The bill makes positive discrimination unlawful for most protected groups, and in addition to the seven strands includes nationality and socio-economic status.
But he forgets about Trans people – so by implication, it’s OK to positively discriminate in favor of trans folk.
I’ll guess that’s not what he intended!
(The commons briefing paper produced to go along with this bill also points out the discrepancy, so it’ll no doubt get fixed – assuming the bill goes anywhere, which is unlikely)
