ITV and New Statesman are offering internships to non-whites only. Philip Davies MP: “Positive discrimination is racism, pure and simple.”

Appalling.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Discrimination is still discrimination.

    A rotting fish by any other name would smell as sour…

    I googled her on YouTube. Watch this; it’s actually amusing but I cannot imagine anyone paying to suffer three sets of it:

    Jelena Ostapenko v Simona Halep

    It’s bizarre but I learned long ago that there nothing so risible or absurd that a woman will not stoop to do it.

    I could not agree more with Mr Philip Davies. ‘Positive discrimination’ is disgraceful.

    Discarding meritocracy makes a mockery of the recruitment process. If it is not the best applicant for the job, then it ought not be called recruitment. ‘Appointment of the favoured demographic’ would be more truthful.

    Women only shortlists paved the way for this. Once you depart from appointing people on merit there is no end to the ways you can try to justify discrimination.

    • Groan

      Women only shortlists are only possible due to a specific Act of Parliament because they were shown to be illegal (the Equality Act) by a legal challenge by a male Labour candidate. Positive discrimination is illegal under the Equality Act , but of course it will require a potential intern to mount a private case to bring the Act into force.

        Thanks. The Equality Act permits ‘positive action’, which in practice is positive discrimination. Women are taught how to exploit it in taxpayer-funded seminars, I haven’t ever heard of men using it.
