You will have seen that I blogged yesterday on the Tories anti-women votes on two paragraphs on the report by Giusto Catania dealing with fundamental rights in the EU.

You may be interested to know that on the final resolution on the report on fundamental rights in the European Union the Tories mainly abstained. Nicholson, Sumberg, Sturdy, Beazley and Bradbourn actually voted against the report.

This means they voted against or abstained on calls for greater equality measures for women (in equal pay, direct and non-direct discrimination, right to return to same job after childbirth etc), cross-border rights for same sex partners, improved rights for immigrants (particularly the Roma) - just to name a few.

Equal pay? I don't get the same salary as my (same-sex) colleague in the office across the hall way, although we are both experienced programmers working on the same project.
I don't get the same salary you get as MEP, I even don't have the slightest chance to get your function. How's that for equality?
Nothing is less equal than two individuals.
