He writes in The Times:
"There’s too much money to be made, too much white liberal guilt to be assuaged, too many black or Asian people siphoned into these pseudo-job ghettos, for common sense to be allowed to intrude"
This sort of material is not novel on my blog. What makes it astonishing is who is saying it. Rod Liddle is a former producer on the BBC's Today Programme, a former speechwriter for the Labour Party. When people like Liddle wake up and smell the fairly traded coffee, you know the game will be up. One day.
Liddle has the perfect solution, a quickie diversity course of his own, which even I can sign up to:
I even devised my own course once: it lasted nine seconds and consisted of those attending reading aloud the following from a piece of paper: “I will not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of their race, gender or sexual orientation.”
I wonder how much we spend on so called diversity training/ brainwashing in commerce and the public sector?
