Public Money and Private Lobby Groups
Take a look at these two police vehicles from Northumbria and Thames Valley. Declaring their allegiance to Stonewall. pic.twitter.com/CakSBWad2D— WeAreFairCop (@WeAreFairCop) August 1, 2022
Northumbria and Thames Valley police are spending public money advertising a controversial lobby group, Stonewall (a private company), whose duff advice resulted in Garden Court Chambers losing a landmark employment rights case recently.
Stonewall, of course, succeeded previously in persuading SNP ministers to drop the word 'mother' from the Scottish Government's maternity policy.
Stonewall, Bogus Complaints and Damaged Goods (July 30, 2022)
Stonewall are irretrievably damaged goods in the wake of the Alison Bailey case.
Stonewall complained about Bailey, a black lesbian barrister, to her employer Garden Court Chambers (GCC) - who upheld the complaint instead of telling Stonewall to 'get lost'.
In upholding Stonewall's bogus complaint the employment tribunal found that GCC discriminated against Bailey and victimised Bailey for her beliefs.
So much for Stonewall's advice and expertise - I suspect lots of their clients are now running for the door!
