    Default Equality, Equity, Justice.

    With all this house arrest tempers are fraying, so you have to be really careful with your choice of words.
    The latest brouhaha, is the use of equality/equity.
    I see promoting equity as rather patronising: rather like helping old ladies across the street, when they can manage perfectly well by themselves. Maybe I'll go for justice
    What do you think?

    In a perfect world it would be Justice. I would like to have said Equity but from experience those in a position to provide support to those who need it rarely do or even want to

    As an ex-law teacher these three words have very specific meanings!

    Could be Peter, but its just the lounge: "Pull up a chair and have a biscuit! You can talk about anything in here...well almost!"
    If its incomprehensible, it's because our mouths are full of Jaffa Cakes. Dennis.
