Yes, this is true:
Equalities legislation was designed to enable a shift in cultural norms, by changing the way that government departments, companies and institutions run themselves and embedding in them mechanisms that instinctively protect those groups who too often find themselves at a disadvantage. Reducing this legal duty in the public\’s eye to a token tick-box exercise, or portraying it as a bureaucratic burden, is to fundamentally undermine the potential for equality laws to initiate structural reform that is lasting and meaningful.
And the people who were pushing that agenda, that policy mix, lost the last election. So that agenda, that policy mix, is no longer being followed.
For, you see, your desires are not an immutable truth which must be imposed upon all: they\’re simply a bit of politics, much like any other, which when the political winds change are at risk of being disregarded.
In short, tough titties.
