Does it Really Matter?

In these day of irritating political correctness, I'm rather puzzled at how this makes it into the public domain and more especially, via the Guardian, that pseudo left leaning liberal (and now vociferous anti Brexit) newspaper.

The Mail I could understand, but that lot? Heavens forbid the ONS provided details for publication about race and religion. Crikey, they'll have us all wearing arm bands and badges before you know it.

It's a dangerous precedent in my book and as said, does it really matter.

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

What a pointless waste of typing. Who cares actually cares, I think most of know what our friends orientations are and where they live, I really don't think anybody needs a map.

QUOTE...

The ONS – the government’s statistics body – has mapped how many people told researchers they were gay, lesbian or bisexual, broken down by county and by local authority, for an experimental dataset covering 2013 to 2015.

UNQUOTE..

 

obviously, someone cares... and they cared enough to commission the " experimental dataset"... does that remind you of anyone who did something similay a few years ago.. ?

What I want to know is how many of those also told researchers they were Jedi's?

Re: Does it Really Matter?

I'm surprised to see Cambridge is a gay 'hotspot'.  Possibly just the students skewing the figures.  And I'm still no wiser as to whether Daffyd Thomas really is the only gay in Llanddewi Breffi.
