Framework for a Fairer future
There is extensive comment on Kate Phizackerley on General Business Administration but the short comment I have submitted to the BBC reads as follows:
The document fails industry and individuals. Both want people to be treated equally and fairly not as special cases. In practice this leaves some groups more favoured than others – women only Parliamentary shortlists will be allowed but not ones for the disabled, nor for ethnic communities. There is no mention of the mentally ill or transgendered – not equal enough to even be mentioned.
We need equality legislation – but we neeed it to be based on equality not favouring certain groups.
