And Do You Fail To See The Irony?

“The fact is Britain remains a hugely unequal country for black and ethnic minority people,” said Mr Khan, the son of an immigrant bus driver, at an event staged in Tower Hamlets by Operation Black Vote.

*shakes head sadly*

Mt Khan, of course, doesn’t want equality. He wants affirmative action:

Launching a consultation on policy ideas for the 2015 Labour manifesto, Mr Khan outlined several firm policy plans, including:

Police forces including the Met would face a new “legal requirement” to have active recruitment policies designed to increase diversity.

Companies will face legislation unless they increase the number of black people in directors’ posts.

Targets will be set to double to 18 per cent the number of BME candidates in the Fast Stream programme of Civil Service promotions.

Two QCs have been asked to recommend ways to get more BME judges and magistrates.

The Work Programme would be changed to target unemployed black and Asian people more effectively.

We are going down the USA path if we are stupid enough to elect this party. And I fear a lot are…

      Oops – looks like GCHQ left that function on by accident.

    Here’s a challenge – next time you go into any Asian restaurant, be that Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani etc, see if you can spot any employees not of that ethnic origin. You generally won’t. Obviously native Brits don’t have the necessary highly-developed skills for carrying plates or washing pots for the minimum wage.

    Maybe the dodgy Sadiq Khan should be campaigning for all employers to reflect the local population-mix in their recruitment profile – somehow can’t see him doing that, wouldn’t go down well with his shadowy backers.

      One memorable day, a collegue of mine (we both) saw a sign advertising a job on a chinese restraunt “Must speak Catonese.” (WHY, therefore, it was written in English was and remains a mystery)

      He was nearly 2 meters tall hair that would make Eric the red look like a paki in comparison, a great big “Colonel Bogey” moustache, and as Irish as the day is long.

      We waited until the evening, and he went in, in civys and applied for the job.

      They were MOST perplexed when he applied for it in fluent cantonese, both spoken and written!

      He had been brought up in Hong Kong, and had attended a normal local school from the age of five years old. 😈 :mrgreen:

    And here we have another idiot that wants to kill the UK. At this rate I can see the need for piano wire and strong lamp posts.

    Sigh.

    “Us being discriminated against = Bad!” I agree, racial discrimination is bad. “Discrimination in our favour = good!” I disagree, racial discrimination is bad. This really isn’t that complicated.

    As the wise Chief Justice Roberts said: “The only way to end racial discrimination is to stop discrimination by race.”

    It won’t be long before boardrooms are made up entirely of disabled, black lesbians.

    All discrimination is bad (including Harriet-the-mad’s gender issues).

    Undoubtedly, as you say, equality is the last thing Khan wants.

    Oh, and why was Farage deemed “racist” for mentioning Rumanians, when they are of the same race as he himself?
