just need to get this off my chest. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8314322.stm basically the conservatives and current goverment want to increase the number of women, ethnic minorities and disabled people in parliment. This is rediculous. The fact that the goverment is trying to hit targets is raciest/sexist in its own right its called POSITIVE DISCRIMINATION and im sick to death of this type of thing happening. we are supposed to live in a equal opportunities society. Everyone should have the same chance of getting the job/position whatever but the sad fact is this does not happen. sometimes it is discrimination and thats why equal opportunities was created but to swing the other way is just as bad. i once heard on the bcc radio quite a while back that they were giving grants and pay insentives to women plumbers because they wernt enough and for some reason we needed more so the trade is gender balanced. Im 100% for equal pay and opportunities but it seems to me that depending on your sex, race and health now that could give you an unfair advantage over someone else because everything has to be balanced.
