The Government has “sleeper” ministers in various departments
monitoring gay rights, Deputy Leader Harriet Harman
Another Government Minister, Angela Eagle*, promised
that “deeper rights” for homosexuals would be included
in the Equality Bill, which is expected to place new
requirements on public bodies to promote equality.
Miss Eagle also said that the decision of an employment
tribunal to uphold Lillian Ladele’s right to be exempt
from performing civil partnerships “does not seem to
be equal access to me”.
The two ministers were speaking at a fringe meeting
of the Labour Party conference, organised by LGBT Labour
(a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Labour
Miss Harman also said that the upcoming Equality Bill
could present problems for faith schools, but insisted
that “cultural views” must not be allowed to cut across
The Christian Institute has raised concerns about how
the Bill may impact religious liberty.

Eagle has just "wed" her girlfriend.
"Ms Eagle, who had helped draw up the 2004 legislation
that made her big day possible, originally met Ms Exall
at Peckham Labour Party meetings. They have been together
for 18 years."
I wonder what her ideas about “deeper rights” for homosexuals
will entail and will her "new requirements on public
bodies to promote equality" mean even more anti-family/anti-childhood
legislation from a Government that lives and breathes
in order to destroy what was once a fairly decent society?
One day there will be nobody left to pick up the pieces
of this broken nation.
