    No law exists in the books which deals with this. It just protects unfair dismissal. Probably why they are passing it through with the equality bill.

    I don't find much difference between race and gender bias. Do the posters here throw a hissy fit when our own Sect'y of State makes nice nice with countries that curtail the rights of women?

    That can only be because something like this happening must have been thought to not be possible.

    There are laws about refusing people jobs based on their race, aren't there?

    Their constitution could be found to go against some laws I would have thought.

    If something new were needed it should have been brought in before. It is crazy that it was not.

    If you're living in a free society, any party can run for office; that's why. Why would you restrict it is the better question.

    Making them admit non-whites does nothing. It won't prevent them from being racist, it won't change their minds on things. It'll just give them fuel for their hatred if anything.

    So by making them change the stated rules, the same racists will be in power, but they'll just be a smidgen less openly racist than before. Why make them hide their ignorance?

    This is wrong and this is why European democracy is so screwed up.
    Real democracy has the right to defend itself from elements that might lead to anti-democratic policies.
    If there's a party that doesn't support one of the major values of democracy, you ban it from partaking in the elections.
    And if the BNP supports inequality, then their place is out of the politics ground.
    I really can't understand what sane democracy would allow an anti-democratic party to be a part of its government.

    No party should ever be banned unless it breaks our laws, and even then it should be a last resort.
    Living in a democracy and accepting it means you should also accept those you disagree with. No Government should ever have the ability to ban parties, such a thing inevitably leads aways from democracy

    I can understand from this that you also support hate speech then, right Laila?
