The Daily Mail newspaper in the UK is sometimes considered 'the voice of the people', others may disagree. But they are always finding stories to amaze the great British public.
e.g.Taxpayers fund council 'adventures in Sindia and Lesbianandgayland' as part of sessions on equality and diversity
Meanwhile, Hertfordshire County Council has produced a Making Our Mark On Equality And Diversity guide that says references to ‘girls in the office’ is inappropriate because it implies ‘dependence and immaturity’.
The same council also has problems with ‘lady’ which has ‘over-tones of decorum and conformity’ and even woman ‘which has overtones of sexuality’.
Officials at East Devon District Council have banned ‘little old lady, pensioner, youth and youngster’ and guidance to staff states: ‘White European people are also subjected to prejudice and stereotyping – Swedish (“porn and nudity”), Germans (“Hitlers who want to rule the world”), Irish (“thick”), Scottish (“mean, tight with money”).’
A spokesman for Brighton & Hove City Council said: ‘At a cost that is low by any comparison, our training role-plays are proven to do what they are supposed to do, which is to reduce inappropriate discrimination based on race, faith, disability,
gender, sexuality or age.’
Why do 'normal' everyday Brits allow all this to happen? WHO is really in charge of these local authorities?. I would really like to hear from someone who can convince me that all this sort of thing is necessary.
