For those who don't twit:

"We are delighted to announce that the teenage girl who is challenging the CPS over their membership of the Stonewall Champions Programme, has this week applied to the High Court for a Judicial Review:
The teenager said: 'I do not believe the CPS can be fair as they are listening to Stonewall who are misrepresenting what the law says. I do not trust them to focus on the safety, privacy and dignity of girls, or to balance the rights of all young people in schools.'"

This case, which we are supporting alongside FairCop is likely to have huge implications for other public bodies and government departments who are members of the Stonewall Champions Programme.
We are dismayed that the CPS has prioritised its relationship with a pressure group which has lobbied to change the law regarding sex-based provisions over the valid concerns raised by this teenage girl.

Any guidance, document or policy to be used by schools, or any other organisation that deals with under 18s must have Child Safeguarding at its heart. All polices must be legally compliant and free of political ideology.

This regulatory capture, where Stonewall’s erroneous interpretation of the law is taken as gospel, cannot be allowed to continue. We look forward to continuing to support Miss A and once again commend her bravery. Our full Press Release is here:"

Have done some digging, great to see the total steadily rising. I hope Miss A knows the strength of the support behind her.
