Jolly Olde England - circling the drain of Political Correctness

Good lord! From the UK Telegraph:
Advert for 'reliable workers' banned as discrimination by Jobcentre Plus
Nicole Mamo, 48, wanted to post an advert for a 5.80-an-hour domestic cleaner on her local Jobcentre Plus website.

The text of the advert ended by stating that any applicants for the post "must be very reliable and hard-working".

But when Ms Mamo called the Jobcentre Plus in Thetford, Norfolk, the following day she was told that her advert would not be displayed instore.

A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word "reliable" meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.
What a bunch of self-centered prats. Too busy covering their asses to actually think about the things they are told to do. If this wasn't the remains of a once-great nation, it would be laughable. Orwell is spinning in his grave... Posted by DaveH at January 28, 2010 9:02 PM | TrackBack
