Is it discriminatory to call someone left-wing?

As the General Election approaches, the temperature of political debate seems to be rising. The claim by one Tory MP that Ed Miliband had stabbed his brother in the back, and would do the same to the country, is just one example of this.

All may be fair in love and politics, but how far can you go in the workplace before risking discrimination claims from employees? The issue was considered in the recent case of GMB v Henderson UK/EAT/0073/14.
