Equality and an absence of discrimination

On 26 June 2008, The Daily Express reported thus:

"White men could be blocked from jobs and promotions under a so-called equality drive unveiled by Labour today. Instead women and ETHNIC MINORITIES WILL BE FAVOURED… under a new Bill to be revealed by EQUALITIES MINISTER Harriet Harman.

Critics blasted the measure as AN UNWORKABLE PIECE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS THAT WILL SEE GOOD CANDIDATES OVERLOOKED FOR JOBS IN THE INTERESTS OF POSITIVE DISCRIMINATION…

John Midgley, of the Campaign Against Political Correctness, said: 'There is nothing positive about positive action or discrimination. It is counter-productive and potentially racist and sexist. This is typical of Harriet Harman, who must be THE MOST POLITICALLY CORRECT MP'...

Officials insist the move is ‘POSITIVE ACTION’ rather than discrimination… Speaking at a trade union conference yesterday, Ms Harman said: 'We are committed to equality and to tackling discrimination. Equality and an absence of discrimination are the hallmarks of a modern society and a STRONG ECONOMY."
Strong economy? Has the silver-spoon-in-the-mouth person been asleep whilst the credit was crunching and the household bills soaring? Ah, forgive me, I forgot, Harman doesn’t count those likely to be hardest hit by such trivia.

Speaking of equality, I wonder if Harman has ever thought that the state of marriage, and the stable upbringing for the nation's children that once accrued from it, should be treated equally with absent dads and single mothers.

As long ago as 1990, our Equalities Minister co-authored a report entitled, The Family Way, which criticised the family unit and mothers who stay at home. In fact the booklet went so far as to wonder whether 'the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social harmony and cohesion.'
Check out the elite, Brit-loathing super-bitch.
