At an internal disciplinary hearing, the ever more politically-correct Welsh Nationalist Party – Plaid Cymru – has decided to “exclude” one of its former Penarth council candidates – firebrand campaigner Anne Greagsby.
The outspoken Ms Greagsby has already provoked rage amongst the LGBT community – and the alphabet-soup of other sexual self-identifiers – by daring to say that “no women has a penis” – an observation which is anathema in the world of sexual politics.
Plaid Cymru, which is now in thrall to similar avant-gard sexual policies as the Labour Party, has upheld a complaint about Ms Greagsby made by one of its own staff – Mabli Jones.
Plaid Cymru’s “discplinary panel” have told Ms Greagsby that the statements she issued were “potentially damaging to the public reputation of the party” and that the conduct complained about “did amount to discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment” . Ms Greagsby is to be “excluded” from Plaid Cymru for a period of 12 months.
In response to the verdict of the disciplinary panel, Anne Greagsby says “I was accused of transphobia and of abusive language against certain trans people by a member of Plaid Cymru’s staff, Mabli Jones. It was pointed out that Mabli [Jones] was previously on Stonewall’s staff and is presumed to advise Leanne Wood on transgender matters.” [“Stonewall” is the pro-gay-rights campaigning organisation]
It appears, however, that the specific category of “transgender” referred to in thehearing, does not appear in Plaid Cymru’s current official list of so-called “protected groups” – an omission which might well give the party difficulties if the matter goes to appeal .
Ms Greagsby – who was refused the right to have legal representation at the hearing – also says the Plaid Cymru disciplinary panel was unable to confirm whether or not it had adopted “Stonewall”’s definition of “trans”.
Ms Greagsby is joining colleagues in London tomorrow for “silent demonstration “at Westminster Magistrates Court in support. Details are on https://t.co/EcdeROlFrB
