Fawcett Society’s judicial review permission hearing is on Monday 6 December…

We’ve mentioned the Fawcett Society’s legal challenge to the UK government’s emergency budget before – well, the first hearing in the case is on Monday at the High Court in London. On their website there’s an invitation to join them outside the Royal Courts of Justice to show your support for their case – I only wish I could be there!

  1. I honestly don’t know, because I don’t know how the political and policy issues will affect it…

  2. Update: They lost. The story is reported at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-11922551 ; all I can find at the moment is a quote from the judge saying their case was ‘unarguable – or academic’ (I guess he didn’t think these were good things to be …) I’ll post again when there’s more detail available on the ruling!
