Sunday Secretarianism: SPEW gives up on Trots are "orrible, repugant and not worthy" EAT

In February an Employment Tribunal Claim that UNISON discriminated against Trotskyites was thrown out by the tribunal.

The finding by the tribunal was after several different hearings and listening to witnesses and thousands of pages of evidence. 

The Tribunal found that there was no case to answer.

"there was no case to answer since the allegation was outside the regulations (and not capable of being discriminative), it was also “out of time” and even if it was within the regulations and in time it found that no discrimination had taken place".

"They found that the SPEW Trotskyism was “not compatible with human dignity” section 131; they found that SPEW members held “Extreme and repugnant views” section 133; Trotskyism is “not a belief that qualifies for protection from discrimination" section 134; “The claimant views conflict with the fundamental rights of others, and the dignity of others, and are not worthy of respect... in a democratic society". Section 135".

SPEW (Socialist Party England and Wales) whose members took this action have now withdrawn their appeal against this judgement - so we assume they now accept how repugnant et al their views and practices are!

SPEW are also currently trying to sue UNISON in yet another legal claim.  Despite the fact that when they lost the last one they called the judicial system all the names under the sun, they are now asking the "class prejudice" courts to back them! 

Wot complete and utter hypocrites me thinks.
