Could this mean the end of playing the race card?

But will some be treated "fairer" than others? The bill is a guide, the actual enforcment of the law relys on its interpretation.

Included in the Bill could be measures to prevent mixed-sex clubs, such as golf clubs, from holding "ladies' days";
Why should this be in? There is nothing wrong with excluding people from a group, for a fair reason. A ladies day at a golf course, to me anyway, is a fair enough reason.

The golf club is private (generaly), and has probably decided to run the ladies day at the bequest and with the concent of its members.

The girls don't want men at a Anne Summers party, the blokes don't want wemen at a Stag only dinner night.

Sometimes these lawmakers astound me!!!!

Military Dining Nights have women at 'stag' functions.

Extra punctuation does not increase your point - it makes you look a bit dim.

What on earth is a 'dining night'? Must be some RAF idiosyncrasy and, as most RAF personnel are women of one sort or another, the decision to allow them to attend stag nights appears to be a perfectly rational one.

I take it they are not in uniform in case they offend the SODOFFYO staff and wear ear defenders just in case someone says something offensive.

The type who plays the race card will only go looking for something else to use in its place. If they were the sensible sort who just gets mucked in, they wouldn't have latched onto this in the first place.

Isn't this just going to turn out to be yet another waste of tax payers money? They'll spend months investigating all angles, of course incorporating how these policies work in the Seychelles, Mauritius, etc and then come to the conclusion that any race or gender should be allowed to breast feed in a Super Casino :roll:

Am I picking up a hint of cynicism there?

More than 100 Acts, codes and directives introduced since the Sixties to outlaw prejudice based on race, faith, sex and sexuality
That will come as a surprise to people who have been rejected for jobs due to the colour of their skin.

Will the proposed new law have an opt out for organisations like the National Black Police Association? They allow whites to be members but don't allow them to vote.

Yes, they do have women at stag events. However these women are in the forces/club/mess. It is the partners who aren't with them, which of course could include "husbands of", which are becoming more and more common.

We've had men turn up to "ladies" nights, as the partners of the mess member, and we've had husbands turn up to the wives club meals.

Don't be a tube. You knew what I meant. Knob.

That's why they are more frequently being called Guest nights.

I've found recently that declaring myself to be "mixed race" on all official docs especially from the local Council has lead to me getting much better service than I previously experienced. And afterall we are all mixed race to some degree (even if its 20 or more generations back) so I'd like to see them prove I'm not.

A fairness act wont work if it's written by the loony left of Neu Arbeit.

It would make sense to have one law covering those who have been discriminated against rather than a 'general duty to promote equality'

Sounds too vague and will place unnecessary burden on organisations, or rather, already does.

We still call 'em ladies nights. Tradition and all that. No one seems to have a drama with it..... yet.

They're just trying to rebrand PC stuff because they can see a backlash brewing.

Marxism is a religion for atheists--they believe in it like a religion, and PC is cultural marxism in disguise. Winning any individual battle with them won't do anything. They'll just regroup and try again later. The western countries lost the internal cold war while focusing on the external one with the Soviet Union. Unless there's some kind of McCarthy type de-marxification they'll gradually wreck everything.

So you know absolutly nothing about atheism then?

Did you watch "white girl" last night Rebel? "we`re Catholic and want our own assembly!".

Whether there is real discrimination regards ethnicity (in this case if your white, christian, working class) or not does not matter, the fact that the white working class "feels" betrayed is more than enough to be going on with.

It seem that what I regard MY class, has been lost in a blizzard of aspiration, easy money, legislation, immigration, chav casual violence, buying to let, and the old chestnut "working class common sense" (often a masqerade of blind ignorance).

Work started by Thatcherites (not just HER) has been continued with zeal by Neu Arbeit.

It may be interesting to poll Arrsers on whether they think they are white working class or not.

All this from a bloke that grew up in Smethwick with a huge complement of Sikhs and Afro Caribeans, great days and a great community and zero legislation to MAKE us all get on, we just did, as you say in basic "in your own time....go on."

Edited for rosiness :p
