Law: Discrimination on ground of philosophical belief

A new amendment to the Religion and Belief Discrimination Regulations means that any philosophical belief can now be considered as a starting point for a discrimination case whereas previously it was necessary for it to be a philosophical belief similar to a religion or religious belief.

This will lead to a very wide definition and almost certainly political beliefs such as fascism in the BNP case will be caught by it.

It has all the potential for the most ridiculous of Court decisions being upheld.
