On the 13th of December 2017, UKIP AM Gareth Bennett was barred from speaking in Senedd debates in 2018 following a speech about transgender rights.
Open criticism of transgender ideology is apparently not permitted in the Welsh Assembly
The Presiding Officer, Elin Jones, gagged Mr Bennett throughout 2018 until he apologises saying that “Some of his comments were particularly hateful to the transgender community.”
What assembly rules did Mr Bennett break? We have not been told.
It seems his crime was offending the temperament of Ms Jones and nothing more.
