Can -ISM legislation work?

Recommended Posts

Well the latest ban going through Parliament is an anti-ageISM bill. :roll: Whilst there may be good grounds for this attempt - discrimination by holiday insurance companies, doctors etc - can it work? :? Certainly in the area of employment promotion: if ALL applicants are equally qualified - how does one prove descrimination? :wink: Perhaps now, if an airline looses your luggage, and you have a tantrum with the staff, you can now play the ageist card! :wink:

This anti ageism legislation is absolutely vital for Gordon to achieve his goal of us all working until the day we die thus saving billions on the pension and benefit bills :wink::wink::wink:

Actually, it gets worse: seems they're talking about "positive discrimination" in favour of females and ethnic minorities too; so nothing down for a white young or middle aged male then?! :roll: So, with rising unemployment, the BNP won't need a recruiting drive. :wink:

I suppose an accent that doesn't disclose one's geographical and social origins - sort of BBC News presenter?! :wink: So if you want promotion, turn up wearing a dress, with a really good tan and a BBC accent! :wink:
