The UK government decision to use a Section 35 Order to try to block Gender Recognition Reform is a dark day for devolution, democracy and trans rights.
It sets a very alarming new precedent that should concern everyone who believes in devolution and wants the Scottish Parliament to exist.
Only one month ago, MSPs voted overwhelmingly for Gender Recognition Reform. It was a proud day for equality, and for our Parliament.
Downing Street is prepared to ignore this in order to pursue its toxic culture wars and distract from its many failings.
The delays are yet another harsh reminder that, as long as we remain in the UK, we can be obstructed by a discriminatory, anti-trans and increasingly authoritarian government in Downing Street.
Tell the UK Government not to block the Gender Recognition Reform Bill.
