Britain stands charged with failing as a country to take either sufficient or effective action to combat the existential threat posed by climate change, to stem the rising tide of health inequalities, to promote diversity and minority rights, and to ensure true equality for women.
Today Britain will be tried on its record on four counts:
- The environment
- Health outcomes
- Diversity and minority right
- Gender equality
At the end of the trial you, the jury, will be asked to decide if Britain is guilty or not guilty of failing to take sufficient or effective action on each of the four counts.
