Tick Tock Till Tranny Train Tragedy?

Row over female-only compartments being used by transgender people on Caledonian sleeper service pits Churchill’s grandson against Mumsnet

A furious row over the right of men who identify as women to use female-only train compartments has pitted Sir Winston Churchill’s grandson against the might of Mumsnet.

The dispute erupted after the operator of the Caledonian Sleeper, which runs overnight between London and Scotland, said that passengers who were born male but ‘self-identify’ as female could sleep in cabins reserved for women.

The move caused uproar on the Mumsnet internet forum, where users complained that their safety could be endangered.
