Personally, I am not a great fan of CV. I agree with their positions on all issues (I think – to be honest I have not checked every jot and tittle) but their tactics leave a lot to be desired. Nevertheless, whatever one’s view of CV, this is a remarkably illiberal move by the Co-op Bank. Not only do they take a position themselves in regard to ‘diversity’, which they have a right to do I suppose, but they require their customers to agree with them or they will not do business with them.
In other words, they disagree with with what a segment of society says and they oppose its right to say it. Let’s see where this kind of thinking takes our society in the coming days.
