Vote Blue Go Pink -Would You Like to Come up And See My Surgery Sometime?

Ian Dale has blogged about an interesting new initiative by Greenwich Tory councillors to hold surgeries exclusively for gay and lesbian residents.


It seems very confused to me. It says that they <i>will be holding surgeries relating to LGBT issues</i>, but it also says that <i>Any resident of the borough wanting to discuss issues relating to council activities, including housing, civil partnerships, and council tax can come along to the surgeries without an appointment during the allotted time. </i> which is pretty well what would happen at any surgery anway, so what is really so special about this?


There are numerous issues that some LGBT residents might worry about in outing themselves to people in power, or indeed to anyone else.


It seems like it has been done to try and show that they are inclusive, but by inviting everyone else in anyway, it just shows that it's just a bit of spin
