A few days ago Harriet Harman hit the headlines with a ridiculously sexist statement that I actually found offensive. Fraser Spiers summed it up brilliantly on Twitter. There would be outrage had she said the same about another demographic, homosexuals for instance.
I’m fed up of “positive discrimination”, “representative targets” and the days of the ideal job candidate being a black transsexual ginger lesbian in a wheelchair. Surely the best qualified person should get a position regardless of race, gender, disability or sexual orientation?
