Harman wants companies to discriminate

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Straight from the horses mouth, Harriet Harman wants companies to practice discrimination when considering similar applications for jobs:

They might think we don’t want an all male team.

We’ve got a new post coming up, we’ve got equally qualified men and women going for it, we are going to pick the woman because we want to have a more balanced top team.

Under a new law that she wants to bring in, companies will be banned from any form of age discrimination but will be allowed and encouraged to take into account sex and colour when considering two people with similar qualifications for a job to ensure that they have a “balanced” workforce.

Once again, the young white Englishman is going to be discriminated against to meet arbitrary quotas.  Already the police, fire service, local authorities and British government departments run racist recruitment campaigns that ban white English men from applying but now they are going to extend that same racial and sexual discrimination to the private sector.

Is it any wonder so many people are joining the fucking BNP?  It’s the same hand-wrinnging liberals that complain about the BNP that are causing the problem in the first place.

We have got to get rid of this illiberal, racist fucking scum.

    ‘the young white Englishman is going to be discriminated against’

    Insurance companies too?

    All their ‘bets’ are based on arcuturial data, which is usually pretty good, how can you legislate against that, will we all have to pay more or will the older of us pay tons?

    Rejoice, Labour are self destructing and Brits will never be too fond of the BNP.

    When I saw this on the tele this morning I came within a hair’s breadth of breaking it.

    If you want to get rid of discrimation then this kind of policy is the worst possible.

    If we use “positive discrimation” to make sure our workforce or whatever is of the right mix then we are riding for a fall. Those adversely effected by “positive discrimation” will not take it on the chin and assure themselves that they were discrimated against for the greater good of society. I should know for it happened to me at least once when I was long term unemployed and it really pissed me off (and possibly started my journey to the Dark Side of the Force;-P).

    And who the hell decides what the right mix is?

    The main trouble with positive discrimation and “Equality Legislation” in general is that one group in society will view it as a stick used to beat them and as a result will not take seriously those they judged to have benefited from the policy. And when one of them fucks up it will discredit not just the policy but also the “disadvantaged” group they come from.

    And then they wonder why the (white) man/woman in the street is so cynical about such kinds of “positive” discrimation!

    It’s good to get rid of discrimation, it’s bad to replace it with another no matter how honourable your intentions are.
