Yesterday, a Cardiff secondary school introduced open-plan, hotel-style ‘gender-neutral’ cubicles for boys and girls aged 11 to 18.Needless to say, the boys have already gravitated to one side of the room and girls to the other.
I’ve known him for 30-odd years and never suspected for a moment that he had a feminine side, let alone that he was on the turn.

This lunacy is a direct consequence of the deliberate policy of Campbell’s New Labour to divide and rule — carving up society into a gaggle of competing ‘victim’ groups based on race, gender and sexual preference.

But, not for the first time, I can’t help wondering where it’s all going to end.I come from a long line of London dockers, yet I’ve never felt it necessary to turn up for a black tie dinner dressed as a Pearly King. Actually, I’m astonished they’re still allowed to call it ‘Men of the Year’.Surely that suggests a celebration of privileged patriarchy.This removes the need for anyone to make a decision about whether they wear a so-called male or female uniform.’Crossroads of understanding? They think if they give in early, they’ll be left alone. There’s been plenty of comment this week about John Lewis scrapping the distinction between boys’ and girls’ clothes.I don’t propose to add to it, other than to observe that the mooted boycott of the store isn’t going to happen.Now education authorities have put hijabs for five-year-olds on the uniform list, it’s probably only a matter of time before some right-on retailer starts selling burkas for boys.
