Discrimination is the language of the Equality Act 2010. See how it defines discrimination in sections 13-19.

Dismissal is section 39(2)(c).

"To any other detriment" is section 39(2)(d).

Indirectly, the Employment Act 1996 provides that dismissing someone for being pregnant automatically is unfair (by virtue of s99 and s108) or their political affiliation (by virtue of 108(4)) potentially is unfair. Pregnancy is a specified protected characteristic under the Equality Act s4 (s18 is also relevant). Political affiliation is not, but most people would consider dismissal for political affiliation as discrimination.
