I snorted and burst out laughing when I saw the news on (yet another) race audit. Why? Not because I wish for racism to continue to plague parts of our society, but because May will avoid every REAL solution to combating discrimination. She doesn’t support the market, the true and irrefutable way of combating discrimination. She has dithered on re-introducing grammar schools. She has abandoned marriage and the family. Britons are losing their sense of national identity and civic values. So of course her race audit will turn up the same miserable results, and there will be many tongues a-wagging, and many fingers a-pointing, and then they will go back to fumbling over Brexit.
If Mrs May was serious about improving society, then I would like to see an audit on the effects of learning proper maths, English and science throughout the school system on career and employment chances. An audit on the effects of these gelatinous ‘subjects’ such as general studies A-level on the same career chances, if you please. An audit on the consequences of an education system where children are not indoctrinated with presumptuous, intrusive information about sex and drugs, whilst being discouraged from talking about faith, national identity and civic values. An audit on the consequences of lowering admissions standards to major positions (such as . . . Parliament) for the sake of false ‘diversity’. An audit on whether MPs’ pay reflects their worth. I could go on and on. May has no solutions for the race ‘divide’, an expression that keeps mediocre people without any academic/technical pedigree in employment. In the most recent (and wholly unnecessary) ‘race survey’, 71 per cent of Chinese children are properly literate in English, compared with 54 per cent of white English children. I wonder what the media has to say about that?
