Unlike Stonewall, Fair Cop is a small and relatively new organisation dedicated to ensuring police officers exercise their duties “without fear or favour”. The group was founded by former police officer Harry Miller. Last year Harry was visited at his place of work by a Community Liaison Officer from Humberside Police who explained he was there to “check” Harry’s “thinking”.

How Stonewall turned the police into political activists
A new report by Fair Cop released this week has revealed the extent to which Stonewall has bypassed the need to change the law officially by successfully turning the police into a campaigning organisation. The boys in blue are now pushing for law changes and even enforcing things that are on Stonewall’s wish-list but not actually law, for instance treating “gender identity” as a protected characteristic.

A policewoman was told her gender-critical views are unwelcome in the force.
In the early 1970s, under pressure from terrorism and still desperate to collaborate in the containment of communism, West Germany introduced a system that came to be known as the Berufsverbot. Communist or radical sympathies could automatically make you ineligible for any state job, from civil servant to train driver. Your application for employment would be refused, and if you failed to disclose your affiliation, you could be fired.
Thankfully, the Berufsverbot was largely abandoned in Germany a few years later, and what remained of it received a substantial body blow from the European Court of Human Rights in 1995. However, something reminiscent of it seems to be rearing its head in England.

Two police forces have been criticised for not welcoming job applications from people who believe that individuals cannot change biological sex, the Telegraph can reveal. In emails seen by this newspaper, Norfolk Constabulary told a woman inquiring about a role in the force that the job “would not be suitable” for her because of her “gender critical” views. After the candidate made clear that she did not think a person could physically transition to the opposite sex, another force in the South East said her views did not constitute “the behaviours expected” and an application “would be not successful”. It stated that her views would likely result in her failing its “behavioural competency test”.

A barrister and nurses have slammed an NHS health board for an ‘unlawful’ policy which allows transitioning people to use staff-only female shared facilities, claiming the guidelines ‘stop women from voicing concerns’.
Sarah Phillimore, 49, from London, criticised NHS Lanarkshire over their ‘Supporting Trans Staff in the Workplace policy’, which relates to female shared toilet, shower and changing room facilities.
The barrister, who specialises in family law, tweeted an excerpt from the 28-page document, published last Thursday, which states objections to the policy ‘will be dealt with by a manager in a sensitive and understanding way, while not denying the Trans staff member access to facilities appropriate to their lived gender’.

Why aren’t Tory Police and Crime Commissioners reining in hate hoaxes?
Sarah Phillimore, a barrister, is part of the WeAreFairCop group, formed to support ex-police officer, Harry Miller, when he was visited by local police and told to ‘check his thinking’. He was also threatened with the possibility of criminal proceedings. Miller had tweeted about the Government consultation on the Gender Recognition Act. Although Miller had committed no crime, his tweets were recorded, kept on the police record, and made liable for disclosure via a criminal records (DBS) check. When Miller asked for the record of his non-crime to be deleted, Humberside Police refused.

JK Rowling’s publisher invited a transgender activist group to edit a court report covering a free speech ruling.
The writer of the legal article said it was ‘effectively destroyed’ due to extensive feedback from trans rights charity Mermaids.
The move by Hodder Education, part of Hachette, saw Ian Yule resign as chairman of the editorial board of A-level Law Review magazine, for which the article was written.
Mr Yule’s article was a summary of a case in which the police were likened to ‘the Gestapo or the Stasi’ for their response to an accusation that businessman Harry Miller, 55, had posted transphobic tweets.
