Lefty Lunacy: Bob the Builder banished from PC Scotland


Every so often, the Equality and Human Rights Commission pops up and reminds us they exist by saying something daft.

While welcoming the Government’s investment of £1 billion in the Edinburgh region, the EHRC’s ‘Scotland Commissioner’, Dr Lesley Sawyers, said that a problem with this investment was a lack of female and ethnic minority builders. Yes, really.

You see, giving a region lots of money to build shiny, impressive things and create new jobs is all very well, but if “only 17 per cent of employees in construction are female, and less than 2 per cent are from ethnic minorities”, moaned Dr Sawyers, what is the point of all this Government investment?

Stacked Stella and ripped Rachel: coming to a building site near you…or maybe not.
