"You spot them pretty quickly, my friend Jerome Mack tells me. Put 15 people in a room and the chances are that there will be two of them. Thirteen will make the effort. The other two will be BIGOTS and proud of it.
There are many derided jobs and Jerome does one of them. Try this for size. 'Hi, I'm an equalities trainer'... Despite what you read about BUSYBODIES INTERFERING WITH NORMAL HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS AND CURTAILING FREEDOM OF SPEECH, how everything would be all right IF ONLY THE MALCONTENTS WOULD STOP CREATING THE PROBLEMS.
Jerome says what he does is pretty necessary. 'WE WORK FOR PRIVATE COMPANIES, THE NHS, THE POLICE. WE HAVE WORKED FOR THE ARMY'...
We all think WE'RE BASICALLY GOOD, EVEN THOSE WHO PALPABLY AREN'T. And WE ARE ALL CREATURES OF OUR CONDITIONING...
Jerome and his team might conduct TRAINING FOR 10,000 PEOPLE A YEAR, but these are the ones who get angry. Depending on what newspapers are saying, all sorts of things make them angry. Right now TRAVELLERS, GAY PEOPLE AND EASTERN EUROPEANS sit top of the list.
But there's an UPSIDE, and it is THE OTHER 13, because there was a time when in that room, the BIGOTRY of the two would be infectious. No one would stop them, quite a few would join in. 'THINGS HAVE CHANGED,' Jerome tells me. 'They challenge the BIGOTRY now, they SHAKE THEIR HEADS, obviously DISAPPROVING. The 13 HAVE BEEN EMPOWERED, the TWO DISEMPOWERED...
IT'S A WORK IN PROGRESS. THE 13, THEY'RE GREAT. But THE TWO ARE ALWAYS A MENACE. And THEY NEVER QUITE GO AWAY." Hideously diverse Britain

"In this country in 15 or 20 years' time the black man will have the whip hand over the white man."Bigots = The unbrainwashable few
Busybodies interfering with normal human relationships and curtailing freedom of speech = The PC Crowd.
Travellers, gay people and eastern Europeans = PC Crowd pets.
If only the malcontents would stop creating the problems = If only the two would behave like proper sheeple!
We work for private companies, the NHS, the police, the army = The treachery runs very, very deep.
We're basically good, even those who palpably aren't = Those who disagree are palpably bad but even these can be sheepified.
We are all creatures of our conditioning = MORE CONDITIONING REQUIRED!
Training for 10,000 people a year = 10,000 extra sheeple annually!
Upside = 10,000 extra sheeple annually!
The other 13 = Lovely, fluffy sheeple.
Bigotry = Absence of brainwash.
Things have changed = Got that right.
Shake their heads, disapproving = They’re in with the in-sheeple!
13 have been empowered = 13 were easy to brainwash.
Two disempowered = We are all more equal than them!
It's a work in progress = Hate will find a way!
The 13, they're great = Up with the sheeple who do as they're told!
The two are always a menace = Down with those who don't!
They never quite go away.
And we never will, Hugh.
You can trust me on that.
