Official new guidance on “equal treatment” instructs judges to favour non-white defendants in order to “redress inequality”, despite recent research having found young white men to be the most derided group in Britain.
Produced by the Judicial College, the organisation responsible for training judges in Britain, the Equal Treatment Guide’s latest edition says: “True equal treatment may not … always mean treating everyone in the same way.”
Quoting former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Blackmun, the equality guidance, which was first produced in 1999 under Tony Blair’s Labour government, states: “In order to get beyond racism, we must first take account of race.
“There is no other way. And in order to treat some persons equally, we must treat them differently.”
With the word “transgender” making an appearance 232 times in the guidance, the document has extensive detail regarding how judges can best meet the needs of defendants who believe themselves to be members of the opposite sex.
