Two different employment tribunal rulings in recent weeks have sent mixed signals about the right of employees to express their disagreement with transgenderism.

In one case, an Employment Tribunal has ruled in favour of Maya Forstater, stating that she was unfairly dismissed because of her belief that biological sex cannot be changed.

But in a different case, the Employment Appeal Tribunal ruled against Dr David Mackereth, 58, who had claimed he was sacked because he refused to use transgender pronouns.

The Forstater case started in 2018 when she lost her job at the Center for Global Development because of comments she had made on Twitter criticising transgenderism.
