Ethnic Quotas

Ethnic QuotasI have said it before, and I will say it fact I said it yesterday...Nanny can't resist a bit of social engineering.

Why, oh why, do governments insist on this?

It only brings about pain and misery for those on the receiving end of the "engineering".

Anyhoo, Nanny's chums on the Ethnic Minority Employment Task Force recently decreed that companies that bid for multimillion-pound Government contracts will be rejected if they do not employ enough black and Asian workers.

This committee has formulated plans to question competing companies about their attitudes to race, before choosing which to employ. Firms will be asked to provide figures showing the numbers of their black and Asian employees. This figure will be compared with the proportion of people from ethnic minorities living near the company's offices, and will be a factor when deciding the winning bid.

That's right folks, skills no longer matter!

Firms must employ the "right mix" of people if they have a hope of working with Nanny.

How patronising to those "classified" by Nanny as being non white.

Iqbal Wahhab, chairman of the Ethnic Minority Advisory Group, a government-backed think-tank, said:

"These new procurement policies are required to assist employers in making more enlightened recruitment decisions.

It may be unpopular in certain quarters,

but the fact remains that we should not have been in this kind of position in the first place

Utter bollocks!

Society will only grow and flourish if it is based on a meritocracy, not on biased politically motivated patronage.

A spokesman for the British Chambers of Commerce said that the plans would hinder the competitive tendering process and make it more difficult and expensive.

"Public tenders are already complicated enough.

Lengthening the applications will only further dissuade businesses from applying for public work.

This will do nothing to ensure that government contracts go to the firms with the most competitive bids

Nanny doesn't give a stuff about the cost, as it is us the taxpayer who funds her daft ideas.

Three pilot schemes are up and running in Job Centre Plus, the Identity and Passport Agency and the Department for Education and Skills.

A pathetic political sop to those who play the victim. Those who play the victim, will always be the victim.

Get off your knees and earn people's respect!

    Nanny clearly explains, at last, her attitude towards transport.

    Employees live locally!

    Do they now. That will be news to the many people in the construction and maintenance industry for a start where location of home and family and the work they are required to do are very often far from being co-located. Perhaos Nanny does not undertake any civil engineering projects ... actually maybe that is true these days.

    A large number of the people I know, unless they work from home, travel significant distances to their place of work - how wide will Nanny's local area be

    And what of those who work in the cash only industries, often related to clothing in days gone by, run by business people from ethnic minorities. Will they be expected to find light skinned workers who speak various non english languages and are prepared to work for slave wages?

    I can foresee a lot of office moves being undertaken if this is enforced.

    Unless it is the Chancers way of cutting public spending by persuading the potential bidders for Government contracts to not bother.

    No wonder I couldn't find a friggin' job this summer. I'm white and therefore don't apply to Nanny's quotas.

    Is 'meritocracy' a proper word?

  5. Avon and Somerset Police were taken to a tribunal recently by an Anglo-saxon man who had applied f to train as a policeman but was not selected because the force had ethnic quotas to meet.
    The case was Succesful.
    Will it happen that firms will emply ethnics to meet the quotas and employ our people to actually do the work.
    Do these quotas apply just to coloured people or do Poles, Hungarians and so on enter the equation also.
    Another example of this so-called government meddling where there is no need.
    Were the sharks in the Cariban asleep?
