Apart from being intrusive and bigoted against anyone who isn’t precisely “male” or “female”, this year it’s also run by one of the world’s biggest arms manufacturers. £150 million of government money (when we’re being told that a £6bn public spending cut is “absolutely necessary”) going to an American company whose major revenue streams include nuclear missiles and cluster bombs. YAY.
