Did you see the BBC running with the faux outrage from the usual suspects that it could take..gasp..almost another HUNDRED YEARS before UK women managers are paid the same as their male colleagues? Here’s the link. I heard a comrade on from the Trade Unions on saying that at least they were fighting the good fight for equality in the Public Sector but those evil males may still be earning more! I was intrigued to read that the author of the report is Lord Davies of Abersoch. He was elevated to the Lords by Gordon Brown and worked alongside Peter Mandelson. So, no hint of bias there. Leftists love to whinge about the imagined pay discrimination in the work place, suggesting that employers are intrinsically sexist and discriminatory. We’re not. But we base salary on experience, continuity of employment and competence. That. of course, flies in the face of the utopian logic employed by Lord Davies and willingly lapped up by the BBC.
THE GENTLE TOUCH?
