Unequals preach equality

January 6, 2014

According to The Telegraph:

…legislation had originally been introduced to allow dukes, earls, viscounts and other hereditary peers to pass their titles along a female line of succession.

Miss Stuart Taylor said: “…I have been brought up believing that girls are equal to boys…. Everything is equal….”

Mary Macleod, the Conservative MP and former royal aide, who supports the proposed legislation, said: “…Anyone I spoke to about it felt incredulous that still, today in this day and age, girls and boys…were not given equality of opportunity in terms of heredity peerages and estate.”
