Today’s Guardian contains more proof, if proof were needed, that Harriet Harman’s Equality Act poses a direct threat to free speech.
It has published a letter from 11 lawyers, including a QC, threatening supermarkets with legal action unless lads’ mags are immediately withdrawn from sale.
“Displaying these publications in workplaces, and/or requiring staff to handle them in the course of their jobs, may amount to sex discrimination and sexual harassment contrary to the Equality Act 2010”, it says.
“Similarly, exposing customers to these publications in the process of displaying them is capable of giving rise to breaches of the Equality Act”.
