In the news yesterday is the story of a Kent builder who claims he was called racist by Jobcentre staff, after his advert for a carpenter said the person must be able to speak and read English!
Apparently, the Job Centre wrote to him with a letter that said: “You informed the contact centre you were not willing to employ anyone who did not speak English.
"Where employers discriminate against job applicants on the basis of race, they may be in breach of the Race Relations Act."
Even the most liberal employers among us must be dismayed to think that it is now considered “racist”, to require a potential employee to speak and write the English language as a necessary part of a job specification. Proof positive that the lunatics have been handed the keys to the asylum we now share with everyone else.
