Nanny Bans White Men
Nanny really has something of a bee in her bonnet about social engineering. She can't resist trying to mould society into the shape and form that she thinks it should be.
The trouble is that her meddling is not based on any form of logic or common sense, and does immeasurable harm to society and its cohesiveness.
Seemingly, in Nanny's view, there are just too many white men working as firemen (sorry, "firepersons"). The fact that if your house is burning down, you wouldn't give a stuff as to the sexual/genetic make up of the people trying to save you and your house has escaped Nanny.
To this end, Nanny's chums in Avon Fire Service recently held some "open" days for recruiting more people to the force. The trouble is that these "open" days were not quite so "open".
Avon Fire Service banned white men from attending them.
The trolls who run Avon Fire service are worried about their "diversity" targets, and restricted the "open" days to women and ethnic minorities.
Two of the six-hour sessions have been limited to women and ethnic minorities. Another was for women only and a fourth was laid on exclusively for ethnic minorities.
How farking stupid and patronising!
How exactly does this absurd ban help the community, women or ethnic minorities?
Kevin Pearson, the brigade's chief officer, said:
"It is my concern to improve diversity so the service reflects the community it serves and we can provide the best possible service."
Your job is to put fires out!
Avon was aiming for 15% of its staff to be female, and 3% to come from ethnic minorities.
What about targets for reducing the number of fires?
"I'm the bad guy?"
