Y'know for someone who whined and ranted in the Libertarian PMs thread for about 10 pages, it's shocking you can't even be bothered to write a sentence or two for this bill explaining your reasoning...
No justification provided.
I agree with the principle but it is poorly written.
abstain, not enough (or any) detail/ justification
What is this lol there's nothing written in the bill and no explanation no notes no nothing.
I agree with the principle but the bill is poorly written and provides no justification, hence why it is a PMB and not Party legislation.
Abstain, for the same reasons as everybody above.
Nay. The Equality Act is not, contrary to what its critics say, a piece of legislation which requires positive discrimination (except in one tiny situation where women on maternity leave are required to be given priority for suitable alternative roles in redundancy situations). Rather, it is the founding basis of discrimination law in the UK, and repealing it would arguably take us back, legally speaking, to the dark days before the Race Relations Act. Think "If you want a ****** for a neighbour, vote Liberal or Labour".
The Equality Act is the bastion of social liberalism in the UK, and those who oppose it yet call themselves "liberals" are making complete fools of themselves.
Nay, this bill is poorly written. Even in principle, the negative effects incurred by the repeal of this bill outweigh the advantages (namely, increasing the freedom of the individual to choose who to employ). Would possibly be open to repealing it for certain areas of employment, such as small family-run businesses, if carried out correctly, but not for the vast majority of areas of employment.
Poorly written and no justification for such a repeal.
Nay. There seems to be this common trend going with the start of a new parliamentary term, everyone sending in poorly written legislation. This is no exception ... you're planning to repeal the Equality Bill without giving us any further detail in the notes section as to why. Just a complete shambles.
Nay, like everyone else said: no justification is provided and it is poorly formatted.
