The SNP has “set back” gay rights with its gender reforms and “toxic” debate, claims an openly gay MP who called the Scottish party out on stage at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival. Labour MP Wes Streeting, who also labelled Stephen Flynn a “career politician”, had a few words to say about the issue dividing politics and his own party. Only last month, UK Labour backtracked on their commitment to Self-ID and with it their support for Holyrood’s Gender Recognition Reform (GRR) Bill. Now Mr Streeting says the Bill failed to look at the worst-case scenarios and is “a really good example of what happens if you only ever legislate with good intentions.”
