Another preview of coming attractions from the country that used to be one that respected freedom:
White men could be legally blocked from getting jobs under new anti-discrimination laws being considered by Labour.
Employers would be able to give jobs to women or ethnic minority candidates in preference to other applicants, under the plans unveiled by equalities minister Harriet Harman.
If two candidates were equally qualified for a position, employers would be able to reject the white person or the man in favour of a black person or a woman.
Its so 1984 that the ministry is “Equalities”. Equalities ministry will implement rules so that its much more important about the shape of your genitals or the color of your skin. However, I find it very sad that the response of the Conservatives is to discriminate but base it on pay and the shape of your genitals – not the color of your skin:
Theresa May, Conservative spokesperson for women, said: “One of the real problems facing women today is the gender pay gap.
“If Harriet Harman really wants to help women in the work place she should strengthen the existing laws on equal pay. We have recently put forward proposals to do just that and our proposals would have a real impact on women’s lives.”
And none of this should be any surprise. Why just last year the “Equalities” minister wanted to:
Last year Miss Harman called for all-black shortlists in constituencies with high ethnic-minority populations.
She said that unless action was taken, it would take decades for the make-up of the Commons to accurately reflect the make-up of British society.
But the plan immediately came under attack from ethnic minority MPs on the Labour backbenchers – saying black people should be selected on merit.
