The RFL (Rugby Football League) was one of the first sporting bodies to sign up to the Coalition’s Sports Charter – which is about tackling homophobia and transphobia in sport.

You – because you are collectively responsible for all the policy decisions the government makes – are allowing the distribution of homophobic material in our schools. You – because you are collectively responsible for all the policy decisions the government makes – say that the equality act does not apply to the curriculum and so therefore there is no obligation on you to stop this.
