I have just listened to Radio 4 new programme and they had as a guest Editor Lenny Henry. Now I always liked Lenny but he has an almighty chip on his shoulder about being Black.
The first thing he done was to insist that all presenters on this mornings programme were from an ethnic background his argument that ethic minorities are under represented in Press, Media, Entertainment etc. . He may have a point but has he considered that they may not be good enough for the Job? The days when ethnicity, gender and sexuality were part of the job description have long gone, in fact I would go as far as to say the pendulum has swung the other way because of Positive Discrimination in favour of ethnicity, gender and sexuality the White Heterosexual Male is being discriminated against. It is time the Government and Lefty/Liberal realise the British public want the best person for the job irrelevant of their ethnicity, gender and sexuality. Can I give you an example the Police over recent years have come under a lot of criticism is that because there is a fault in the system or is it a fault of Individual? If it is the latter could it be that because of Positive Discrimination the standard of Police Officers has dropped?
He then went on to interview a prominent UKIP member of Pakistani origin who he accused of being a Pawn for a Racist Organisation. I believe he was Amjad Bashir MEP, any way who ever it was he spoke very eloquently and answered all Lenny’s question truthfully. He is certainly someone I see as a MP who unlike Lenny can see the bigger picture and does not walk around thinking “Cos I am Black’ syndrome
