Fair Cop

Discrimination is an ugly blight on any society, worse when it is embedded by legislation and supported by a government. It is appalling when employment practices deemed unlawful elsewhere in the same country are imposed on another.

At least Gloustershire Police have had the good grace to apologise for the "distress caused" to those it discriminated against. I wait with baited breath the apology from the Police Service of Northern Ireland to those similarly disadvantaged by the aberation that is 50/50 recruitment.

Comments:
My brother was in retail and says he was often discriminated against by Asian wholesalers who would charge him a higher price.

This was very foolish on the part of the police, I guess they felt pressurised to meet some kind of targets on their ethnic intake and were their own victims of political correctness.
