Whitehall Snowflakes Create Wide Range of Woke Networks mdi-fullscreen

As lobby-fuelled allegations against Dominic Raab continue to bubble away, Guido can shed some light on the mindset of the snowflake civil servants lodging complaints. Taking a look down the list of civil service staff networks begins to look like the diversity section of a university societies fair – filled with safe spaces for every imaginable facet of identity politics.

In addition to groups dedicated to representing race and religion, there are associations for dyslexia, dyspraxia, stammers and humanism. Of course, no diversity drive would be complete without LGBTQIA+ representation. The Civil Service LGBT+ Network aims to produce a more equal environment for those of “minority sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics.” It’s doing so by arranging LGBT+ History month quizzes and gay film screenings.
