Let’s replace one inequality with another!
From Dominic Raab….
….in response to a letter from a disappointed constituent, I wrote to the FCO, requesting a review of their work experience schemes – open exclusively to ethnic minority, female, disabled or low income candidates. I am all for encouraging applications from a wide range of backgrounds – but I oppose positive discrimination in recruitment as a matter of principle. This political correctness at the FCO is a hangover from the last government. I welcome the response of the new FCO Ministers – immediately putting the current schemes under review. The Mail on Sunday reported the story here.
Political correctness does not legislate tolerance; it only organizes hatred. Jacques Barzun
