Discrimination tidbit

On 11 March 2013 (Commonwealth Day 2013), Queen Elizabeth signed the new Charter of the Commonwealth. Among other things, it states the following:

“We are implacably opposed to all forms of discrimination, whether
rooted in gender, race, colour, creed, political belief or other grounds.”

That includes discrimination on the basis of poverty, social status or family background.
