As you know, Nanny has implemented many laws to ensure that people cannot be discriminated against and held back in their jobs as a result of race, religion, ability or sex.
These laws all work to ensure that, where the playing field is perceived by some to be uneven, it is "flattened" out.
However, even Nanny cannot think of everything; which is what Sgt Leslie Turner (the first black personal protection officer to guard the royal family) found to his cost.
You see it seems that Sgt Turner realised that he had in fact been "positively discriminated against", and "overpromoted" to the position of body guard to the Duchess of Cornwall.
Needless to say, on realising this, he sued Scotland Yard and has allegedly won around £40K in compensation for racial discrimination in an out of court settlement.
His representatives argued he had been awarded the prestigious job as Camilla's bodyguard only because he was black.
It was claimed that as a result of being over-promoted, and not receiving proper training and support, Sgt Turner made mistakes which led to him being re-assigned.
A cynic might argue that everyone makes mistakes when placed in a new job or company. Mistakes are part of the learning process.
Colleagues of Sgt Turner, said that he is a "model professional" who had a good relationship with Prince Charles and Camilla.
He began guarding Charles in August 2004, and was re-assigned to Camilla in February last year when the royal couple were engaged.
But in June 2005, it emerged he had suddenly been replaced.
Royal insiders stress that the decision to move him was not taken directly by Clarence House. However, they concede that the race row is extremely embarrassing for Charles and Camilla.
Had Sgt Turner's case reached a tribunal, potentially embarrassing secrets about Charles and Camilla's lives may have been aired.
A cynic might suggest that this is the real reason that Scotland Yard settled out of court.
Now...I am a 43 year old white, atheist, male, heterosexual, able bodied, homeowner; can anyone tell me who I may make a discrimination claim against?
