It’s interesting that the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in Britain should decide that the British National party is “homophobic and sexist” and decide to work towards a ban on BNP members’ working in the public sector in professions such as teaching and the civil service.
Quite right, you might say. Detestable BNP. Sexist. Homophobic. Shouldn’t be allowed.
However, much as most people – including bloggers hereabouts – detest the party, should not the TUC, in fairness, be campaigning also against the churches and the mosques, and trying to prevent members of those organisations from working in the public-sector professions?
For the same reasons?
