Barrister Sarah Phillimore writes about how an enquiry to her local police force revealed an unpleasant surprise about what they had recorded against her name and why she hopes the Supreme Court will declare the Hate Crime Operational Guidance unlawful.
The reach and influence of Stonewall, Mermaids et al. is impressive indeed. But there is another group that has targeted the legal profession. Fair Cop examine the extent to which the legal profession has now been ‘Stonewalled’ with some alarming feedback from one training event for solicitors.

If a man wants to get away with a serious crime, he should commit it while wearing a dress.
It sounds like the set-up to a misogynist joke from the 1970s, but this is the reality of policing in 21st century Britain.
Last year a man suffered a serious sexual assault in Bishop’s Stortford. In their initial appeal for witnesses, Hertfordshire Police withheld key information about the suspect that might have led to a quicker arrest, only later revealing that they were seeking a man dressed as a woman.
Bismarck famously compared laws to sausages: it is better, he said, not to see either being made. But this doesn’t mean that policy making should be conducted behind closed doors. If we’re asked to swallow new legislation, we must be able to examine the ingredients and question the manufacturing process.
Good laws are the result of engagement and discussion with experts; they are based on rigorous, peer-reviewed evidence. Conversely, dodgy statistics and appeals to emotion combined with playground name-calling is a recipe for bad legislation.

Dear Mr Starmer,
We write to you as members of the organisation ‘Fair Cop’. We are a group of lawyers, former and serving police officers and other professionals who are dedicated to upholding Articles 8 through 11 of the ECHR. Sadly, some of our members have to remain anonymous due to the potential negative impact of public engagement in certain debates, but you may be aware of our Founder Harry Miller, who recently won a Judicial Review against Humberside Police. Mr Miller’s case against the College of Policing has been ‘leapfrogged’ to the Supreme Court, such is the importance and significance of the arguments he raises about protected political speech and the police Hate Crimes Operational Guidance.

Providers of workplace transgender “training” rely on employees’ silence and complicity to spout their unscientific nonsense unchecked. And with so many people losing their jobs after pressure from trans activist groups — including the training providers themselves — it’s no wonder so few people feel they can speak up. But our guest writer not only stood up to the transcult bullies who tried to get her fired: she won.
Fair Cop and Safe Schools Alliance UK are delighted to host their first webinar on Tuesday 26 May from 7 pm to 8 pm BST.
There are some really hopeful signs that the tide is turning against an ideology that denies the existence of biological sex. The most recent and exciting developments have been the challenges to guidance produced for schools – the threat of judicial review by two teenage girls has resulted in two sets of Stonewall influenced guidance being withdrawn pending ‘review’. But it’s clear that we can’t be complacent and there is work still to be done. What are the next steps?
