Attorney General: ‘Diversity mindset a sinister and intolerant new religion’

from The Christian Institute:

The “new orthodoxy” behind diversity training is “downright dangerous”, the Attorney General for England and Wales has said.

Writing in the Daily Mail, Suella Braverman QC revealed she had directed officials in her department to scrap programmes promoting ‘Diversity, Equality and Inclusion’.

In July, the Government’s chief legal advisor said she believed ‘trans rights culture’ was “out of control”, posed a threat to the wellbeing of children, stifled free speech and caused legal uncertainty.

‘Taxpayer-funded time’

Braverman said she was “horrified” to learn that “hundreds of government lawyers” had spent nearly 2,000 hours of their “taxpayer-funded time” last year at Stonewall lectures.

Training on “‘micro-incivilities’, different ‘lived experiences’”, “how to be a straight ally’” and “white privilege”, she argued, “is harmful in other departments, but in legal cases it’s downright dangerous.

“It does nothing to create solidarity and encourage support but rather keeps emphasising difference, creates a sense of ‘otherness’ and pits different groups against each other.”

She encouraged Government ministers “to ask to see their departments’ diversity programmes and scrutinise the value for money they offer”, adding: “After all, the ‘diversity’ agenda thrives in darkness .”
