Police forces have been threatened with legal action over their links to Stonewall, amid concerns the controversial charity’s transgender training is impacting their impartiality.
Campaigners [Harry Miller of Fair Cop] have written to chief constables warning they will begin legal proceedings against any force that remains part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions scheme beyond a “period of consideration”.
Now in a letter to police chiefs, seen by The Telegraph, former constable Harry Miller has warned forces that their affiliation with Stonewall breaches police rules on political activity and association with groups that could create a conflict of interest.
Mr Miller, head of the campaign group Fair Cop, wrote: “It is now beyond reasonable doubt that any association, formal or otherwise, with Stonewall is a violation of The Code [of Ethics].
“[This is] given that reasonable members of the public perceive an actual or apparent conflict of interest with police work and responsibilities, such that it creates the impression that the police are not able to discharge their duties impartially.
“Fair Cop will issue Pre Action letters to any force which remains in the Stonewall Champion’s Scheme following a period of consideration.”
