Letter: Gender judgment

From Mr Robert Montagu

Sir: Why is it that every time British justice faces a new legal challenge on a moral issue, the High Court takes a protectionist stand? Is it because the judges prefer to leave all contentious decisions to the Court of Appeal or the House of Lords?

The decision not to allow men who have become women to change gender under their birth certificates must eventually be challenged in the European courts; and once again Britain will be seen as the reactionary, intellectually and morally weak man of Europe.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Montagu

Evershot, Dorset
