Yet listen to this figure - if you are a woman working part-time you get 40% less per hour on average than a man working full-time.
How about comparing like for like? Part time men against part time women. Sounds like the gvmt twisting figures again to get women burning their bras once more

Have you noticed how all the Blair's Bints
that hold high office are actually incompetent?

You can't blame them for passing legislation to
cover their own inadequacies and lack of skills
can you?

...are you suggesting for one moment that positive sexual discrimination in their appointment was to blame Nev? Or do you think all the blokes in the govt are crap, too?

Isn't that something akin to affirmative action in the US in the 80s?

That lead-in paragraph is the shocker Where the frig did that come from ... the rest of the report is going off about equal pay and discrimination against the elderly. Well, yes we all agree with that bit - tell us more about the positive discrimination at selection.

Piece of **** journalism if you ask me.

From BBC

"Equality minister Harriet Harman has defended plans to allow firms to discriminate in favour of female and ethnic minorities job candidates.

She said firms should be able to choose a woman over a man of equal ability if they wanted to - or vice versa. "

So it's all just a smoke screen ... keep your eyes peeled, this is probably a "bad news" day!

That is NOT what she said on Radio4 this morning.


It will still be illegal to discriminate against women or minorities,
but will not be illegal if you discriminate against a white bloke.

Blimey, that's clear.

I have this theory about how women are more seduced by power than men. Consensus views go right out the window when a woman is in charge.

This smacks of just such a situation prioducing a dodgy piece of legislation. Positive discrimination creates way more problems than it solves. Everyone should compete on their own merit. There's no other way.

I mean, did Hariet Harman get her job through posi......?

... yeah, ok bad example!
